• Toi Rauwhārangi College of Creative Arts graduates

A new generation of artists, designers and other creatives’ work will be on show at Massey University’s annual Te Kanohi Kitea Exposure exhibition in Wellington for two weeks from 6 – 19 November.

Featuring innovative and inspiring exhibits from graduates of the College of Creative Arts’ School of Art Whiti o Rehua, Wellington School of Design Nga Pae Mahutonga and the School of Music and Creative Media Production Te Rewa o Puanga, the exhibition has been the launching pad for many careers beyond university.

Exposure Te Kanohi Kitea showcases the work from soon-to-be graduates in design (photography, fashion, textiles, industrial, spatial and visual communication design), fine arts, creative media production and commercial music. Work by masters students in design, fine arts and creative enterprise will also be on display.

Highlights of the exhibition include original music incorporating both Te Reo Māori and English, a 3D animated short film, a Pasifika talk show pilot, a multi-modal transport planning app, a project exploring the destruction and reconstruction of the 21st century reading experience and a fashion collection challenging masculine gender stereotypes.

College of Creative Arts Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Claire Robinson says Exposure is an annual highlight on Wellington’s creative calendar. “Exposure is a chance to showcase the exceptional work of our graduating students, who through cross-disciplinary learning with real world briefs, leave Massey equipped with critical thinking, entrepreneurial attitudes and innovative problem-solving skills.”

“Our graduates find success in New Zealand and around the world, and Exposure is a wonderful opportunity for the public to view their talent and experience our world-class facilities,” Professor Robinson says.
