Family Tree Whakapapa brings together the work of four sisters: elin o’Hara Slavick, Madeleine Slavick, Sarah Slavick and Susanne Slavick.

As curators, painters, photographers and writers, all have incorporated images of trees in social, political and environmental conditions — trees that stand as refuge and livelihood, consumed and consuming, under assault and triumphant, as historical record and as harbinger of things to come. Family Tree Whakapapa offers perspectives both unsettling and soothing as nature increasingly reflects salient issues of our times.
