Let celebrated writer and curator Justin Paton take you on a visual journey through the landscape of Aotearoa New Zealand, as Colin McCahon loved and painted it. With this talk, we celebrate Paton’s landmark new book "McCahon Country", published in association with Penguin Random House on the 100th anniversary of McCahon's birth.

In 15 lucid chapters Paton reveals McCahon’s intense exploration of human faith and mortality, his engagement with Māori culture, his passionate concern for the environment, and his vision of land as a source of peace and spiritual sustenance.

‘Justin Paton is the perfect guide to Colin McCahon country – a place that intertwines the real with the spiritual. His prose is as fresh and as intoxicating as the landscapes that inspired these extraordinary paintings.’ – Jennifer Higgie, Editorial Director, Frieze magazine
