The exhibition title Te Hono Wai – Where waters meet is a metaphor for peoples meeting and cultural exchange occurring. Where waters meet might be an estuary; freshwater meeting saltwater, one culture interacting with another through an ebb and flow of understanding and misunderstanding and ultimately affecting change on both parties.
The exhibition highlights encounters between Māori and European in the early 19th century both here in the Bay of Islands and in England.
Opening: Friday 2 July, 5.30pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, 3 July, 12pm
