Talk & Book Launch: Robin White - Something is happening here

26 May 2022, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Aratoi Foyer

A special conversation featuring Dame Robin White and Jill Trevelyan in conjunction with the new book and Te Papa exhibition Robin White: Something is happening here.

Robin White: Something is happening here is the first book to be devoted to Robin White’s art in 40 years. Its assessment of her remarkable 50 years as an artist includes fresh perspectives by 24 writers and interviewees from Australia, the Pacific and Aotearoa New Zealand and celebrates her status as one of our most important artists.

Including more than 150 of her artworks, from early watercolour and drawings through to the exquisite recent collaborations with Pacific artists, as well as photographs from throughout Robin White’s career, this book captures the life of a driven, bold, much-loved artist whose practice engages with the world and wrestles with its complexities.
