The natural world of Aotearoa New Zealand was full of wonder for European immigrants.
As they encountered things that were strange to them, they arranged them to fit with their ideas about organising the world.
Artists and makers captured the beauty of what was ‘discovered’ in paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs.
This exhibition features works by artists and photographers including George Vernon Hudson, Nancy Adams, John Buchanan, Sarah Featon, Herbert Dobbie, and Ayesha Green.
I mīharo ngā manene o Ūropi ki te ao tūroa o Aotearoa.
Nō te kitenga atu o ngā mea tauhou, ka tahuri rātou ki te tātai haere i aua mea e hāngai ana ki ō rātou ake whakaaro e pā ana ki te hanga o te ao.
Kua hopukina te ātaahua o ō rātou ‘kitenga hou’ e ngā ringatoi, me ngā kaihanga, ki roto i ngā mahi peita, i ngā tuhinga, i ngā mātātuhi, me ngā whakaahua.
