"Drawing on centuries of indigenous knowledge and skill, it reflects a Maori world view, life in this land and the debates that continue to shape it. Based on the ... 2020-21 exhibition staged by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, and edited by the show's curator Nigel Borell, Toi Tu Toi Ora tells the story of contemporary Maori art from the 1950s to the present day, with more than 200 works by110 Maori artists. From carving to painting, video art to jewellery, body adornment to weaving, this is a powerful expression of the vast creativity and diversity within Maori art, linked across time and place through the Maori creation story and revealing profound connections to whakapapa, to whenua and to the spiritual world. Every work is illustrated in full colour and described in illuminating captions that are bilingual in English and te reo Maori"--Publisher information.
