Whano Kē showcases examples of the diverse creativity in Māori art from the 1960s to the present day. The exhibition takes its title from the Māori words whano, which means to proceed forward, and kē, which indicates movement in more than one direction, and explores the way that Māori artists have brought traditions into the present.
Bringing together work by Ralph Hotere, Lonnie Hutchinson, John Bevan Ford, Toi Te Rito and Michael Parekowhai, Whano Kē conveys the thoughtful vigour of Māori creativity.
