Please join us at Sanderson to hear Simon Kaan discuss his artwork and practice, as well as a response to the Matariki : Te whakanui I te tau hou exhibition.

As a fifth-generation New Zealander of Chinese, Māori (Ngāi Tahu) and Pākeha ancestry, Simon discusses how his mixed heritage informs his practice.

Land, sea and sky images dominate his art pieces, and the waka is a regular motif in his work.

Influenced by the Otago landscape, Simon is now exploring large-scale outdoor design and helping reflect a greater cultural diversity and revival in Dunedin's urban environment.

There will be an opportunity for a Q&A and kōrero at the end.
