Adam Art Gallery Te Pātaka Toi is pleased to present The earth looks upon us / Ko Papatūānuku te matua o te tangata, our latest exhibition featuring new and existing work by four Māori women artists—Ngahuia Harrison, Ana Iti, Nova Paul, and Raukura Turei—who explore their relation to and cultural connection with whenua/earth/place. Curated by Christina Barton, the exhibition has been scheduled as the Adam Art Gallery’s contribution to the Suffrage 125 celebrations. We acknowledge that, 125 years ago, Māori women fought and won the right to not only vote for members of the New Zealand House of Representatives, but also to vote and stand as members of the Maori Parliament, Te Kotahitanga.
