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, Pākehā). 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.
This event is part of our membership programme. Members receive free, unlimited entry to all exhibitions alongside access to Members-only events, discounts in our shop and café, and more. Join us for $80 per year (discounts available for students and seniors).
