Taiawhio: Conversations with Contemporary Maori Artists - 18th Oct 2016

Contemporary Maori Artists in conversation

This book divides neatly into chapters wherein a contemporary Maori artist is showcased in conversation with one of the five editors: Huhana Smith, Oriwa Solomon, Awhina Tamarapa, Megan Tamati Quennell or John Walsh.  

The conversations focus on the artists' philosophy and inspiration and the illustrations in each chapter include some of the artist's work but also pictures of that artist's studio or working environment to give the reader a deeper understanding.  

This is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary Maori visual art, which in this volume ranges across weaving, carving, painting, and sculpture to video, film and photography.  
Artists include Jolene Douglas, Star Gossage, FredGraham, Lyonel Grant, Dion Hitchens, Emily Karaka, Hei Macgregor, Nathan Pohio, Baye Riddell, Natalie Robertson, Anaru Rondon, Tracey Tawhiao, Saffron Te Ratana, Kura Te Waru Rewiri, and Arnold Wilson.

We also have a great range of other material on Maori and Polynesian art both on line and in the shop so come on in and browse.
