This is the Trekka
Michael Stevenson's This is the Trekka.

British artist Simon Starling and New Zealand artist Michael Stevenson make quirky works based on neglected histories. Are their works history or art?

Join curator Robert Leonard for a tour of Simon Starling: In Speculum, then stroll over to Te Papa, where he addresses Stevenson’s This is the Trekka, New Zealand’s 2003 Venice Biennale work, on show as part of Ngā Toi | Arts Te Papa.
