Māori Moving Image: An Open Archive

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū

Spanning forty years, from Robert Jahnke’s 1980 animation Te Utu: The Battle of the Gods to Janet Lilo’s 2019 ⌘ SHIFT #, the exhibition features many significant artists and works at different times over the show. The exhibition acts as a living archive and an opportunity to collect stories, learn new relationships and find connections between artists.

Exhibition toured by the Dowse Art Museum.
