Event Details


Join us for a thought-provoking panel conversation led by curator Nina Dyer in discussion with emerging artists Hulita Koloi, Llenyd Price, Ana Garcia and Malaki Peter Lakisoe Aiono.

Hulita, Llenyd Ana and Malaki are current exhibitors in the group show Material Instinct showing at Depot Artspace from 5 – 26 August 2023.

Hulita Koloi is a recent MFA graduate from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design. Hulita was born in the Kingdom of Tonga but has grown up in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Her work celebrates community, the collective effort of gathering, and the individuals who surround her. Llenyd Price has continued to explore their position in relation to the landscape of Aotearoa using acrylic paint on found wooden panels. Ana Garcia is a multidisciplinary artist of Filipino descent seeking to form an ātea through her practice for both migrants and non-migrants alike: a clearing or space for conversation and understanding. Meanwhile, Malaki Aiono pieces together disparate objects spread throughout Tāmaki Makaurau, having been raised with principles such as value, waste-reduction and gratitude instilled in him by his grandparents.

Fresh coffee will be available, and all are welcome to attend.
