Discover the roots of Aotearoa New Zealand's largest arts institution
Experience the world premiere of one of the most ambitious screen-based projects from Aotearoa New Zealand, from one of the country's most admired artists. In 1804, Joseph Dufour created Les Sauvages de la Mer Pacifique, a 20-panel scenic wallpaper whose exotic subject matter referenced popular illustrations of the times and mirrored a widespread fascination with Captain Cook and de la Perouse Pacific voyages. Two hundred years later Lisa Reihana reanimates the wallpaper as a spectacular 26 metre wide panoramic video.
Following a record-breaking exhibition of 48 of Lindauer's Māori portraits at the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin – attended by more than 143,000 visitors – Lindauer's portraits have continued their European tour and are now in the Czech Republic. Gottfried Lindauer (1839-1926): Pilsen Painter of the New Zealand Māori is on display at the Gallery of West Bohemia in Pilsen, which is both the birthplace of Lindauer and the 2015 European Capital of Culture.
