Ralph Hotere: Ātete (to resist)
27 March – 25 July 2021
Celebrating the artistic vision of one of Aotearoa’s most significant artists.
As the first major survey exhibition of Hotere’s artistic career for over twenty years, Ātete gathers works from collections across Aotearoa. Hotere’s art charted his journeys throughout Aotearoa and the world, reflecting on his experiences, identity, and politics. This exhibition is shaped by a collective consideration of these journeys, creating meeting points between the major concerns present in Hotere’s work. Including formative abstraction, strident works of protest, and landmark works including Black Phoenix and Godwit/Kuaka, Ātete celebrates Hotere’s artistic achievements and brings his vision to a new generation.
If you wish to be taken on a guided tour with one of the knowledgeable guides please meet at 2pm (daily) at the front desk on the ground floor.. Tours last 45 minutes and there's no need to book.
A partnership project between the Dunedin Public Art Gallery and Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū.
