Panel Discussion

COVID-19 has altered the way we are in the world. What does it mean for artists to engage with issues at home and abroad? Is it more or less complicated to make art from political, cultural and social viewpoints than it was 12 months ago? Uncertainty may dominate our thoughts but not our spirit as we make positive efforts to create a new normal.

A panel discussion with Ngahiraka Mason, curator of A Very Different World and some of the artists commissioned to make works for the exhibition including Russ Flatt, Dion Hitchens and Lisa Boivin (via Zoom).

This event is presented by Te Tuhi in association with Auckland Arts Festival Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki Makaurau and the New Zealand Maritime Museum Hui Te Ananui a Tangaroa.
