On Art & Activism presents art from key moments in Aotearoa, New Zealand's history. Here we see artists speaking out against legacies of capitalism, industrialism, and colonialism, working in the cause of political movements.

These artworks reflect periods in which New Zealand citizens fought wars, rallied for human rights, questioned sovereignty and advocated for the environment.

In some of these artworks, artists have stepped outside their art practice to risk a political position. In others, such as in the Don Binney, the art work is representative of a career-long commitment to a cause through their practice.

These works are reminders of our political past, and in some cases when viewed in the present, are testimony to causes that continue to reverberate today.
