The story of contemporary Maori art from the 1950s to the present day, with over 200 artworks by more than 100 Maori artists. A powerful, dynamic and extensive new book about contemporary Maori art. Based on the ground-breaking 2020-21 exhibition staged by Auckland Art Gallery To...i o Tamaki, and edited by the show's curator Nigel Borell, Toi Tu Toi Ora presents more than 200 works by 100 Maori artists working from 1950 to the present day. From carving to painting, video art to jewellery, this is a powerful expression of the incredible creativity and diversity within Maori art, linked across time and place through the unique Maori creation story. Every work is illustrated in full colour and described in illuminating captions that are bilingual in English and te reo Maori. A beautiful foreword by Moana Jackson and the author's informative introduction share the history of contemporary Maori art within a kaupapa Maori worldview. These are supplemented by a comprehensive chronology of contemporary Maori art by the exhibition's assistant curator Taarati Taiaroa, and detailed biographies for every artist, written by the Gallery's expert curators and art historians, making this a major resource on toi Maori for anyone interested in the culture or history of Aoteroa New Zealand.
