About the exhibition

Jointly developed by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and Te Papa, Robin White: Te Whanaketanga | Something is Happening Here is a retrospective exhibition of work by contemporary Aotearoa artist Dame Robin White (Ngāti Awa, Pāhekā). Explore celebrated portraits and landscapes from the 1970s, alongside more recent, ambitious collaborative works made by White with artists from across the Pacific.

A project of national importance, Robin White: Te Whanaketanga | Something is Happening Here features works from across a 50-year career and builds on over a decade of research. It is supported by an accompanying publication, Robin White: Something is Happening Here, which includes fresh perspectives by 24 writers and interviewees from Aotearoa, Australia and Te-Moana-Nui-A-Kiwa, the Pacific.
