Since the Signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi 187 years ago, many Māori have lived their lives in a space of cultural hybridity.

Adjusting between Te Ao Māori and Te Ao Pākehā can be a dissorienting experience, but people find a way through. This exhibition explores the ways these artists address the changing face of Māori culture, how we hand down knowledge and how we express Rangatiratanga and Mana Motuhake.
