Things Seen and HeardHe mea kite, he mea rongo
Objects linking Asia and Aotearoa New Zealand, representing over a century of connected and curious artists and collectors.
21 Sep 2018 – 21 Jul 2019
Toi Art, Level 5
Each of us inhabit our own version of the world, shaped by what we see and what we imagine. This is especially true of distant places, even ones we’ve visited before.
These objects, which connect Asia and Aotearoa New Zealand, reflect this dynamic flow of ideas. None is the product of a single culture. Instead, each has been shaped by influences that span the globe, representing over a century of connected and curious artists and collectors.
This exhibition was developed by guest curator Emma Ng.
