Product Detail

In 2020, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki hosted over 200 works of incredible Māori art in the highly acclaimed, ground-breaking exhibition Toi Tū Toi Ora: Contemporary Māori Art. Work by every artist in Toi Tū Toi Ora is immortalised within this publication and expertly captured in high-quality colour photography, allowing you to immerse yourself in this extensive collection of contemporary Māori art from 1950s to today. Editor and curator Nigel Borell (Piriakau, Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāi Te Rangi, Te Whakatōhea) brought together works by Ralph Hotere, Fiona Pardington, Shane Cotton, Lisa Reihana, and over 110 other Māori artists to create this powerful expression of the immense creativity and diversity in Māori art. Complete with an introductory essay by Borell, detailed biographies for every artist, artwork texts in English and te reo Māori, a newly researched timeline and a foreword by Indigenous rights activist Moana Jackson, Witi Ihimaera said it best: ‘this is the art book Aotearoa has been waiting for!’
