The influence of the pared-back aesthetic of Reinhardt (United States) on Hotere (Aotearoa New Zealand) has often been discussed. Now their work is brought together for the first time, in the exhibition Māori minimalism and international influence.

Megan and Chelsea discuss the displayed works, the artistic response of contemporary sculptor Matt Pine (Aotearoa New Zealand) to them, and how minimalist art was reimagined within Māori modernism.
