He kōrero ātaahua: A conversation with Reuben Paterson

Event Details

Join us on Valentine's Day for a special conversation as part of the 2021 Auckland Pride Festival with celebrated artist Reuben Paterson focusing on his works in Toi Tū Toi Ora: Contemporary Māori Art.

Reuben says of his sequinned hue (gourd) works that they evoke 'ideas of celebration and rainbows – and I also think of whakataukī around the hue, and of whakapapa and these connections to our LGBTQI community, especially my understanding of the hue being about patience, persistence and time in a broader metaphoric understanding of the hue and society today. Our road to pride today, has been like that of the hue – who does not hurry, but everything about it is accomplished.'

Whānaua kia tini 
Whānaua kia mano 
Whānaua kia rea 
Be brought forth as many 
Be brought forth as a multitude 
Be brought forth innumerably

Space will be limited – we suggest that you arrive early to view the works which Reuben will be highlighting. 

This event is part of the 2021 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at aucklandpride.org.nz
