Masons Screen commissions
We are pleased to announce three new commissions have been awarded to Gabriel White, Louie Zalk-Kneale (Ngāi Te Rangi, Pākehā), and Jamie Berry (Te Aitanga-a-Mahaki, Rongowhakaata, Ngāti Porou, Ngā Puhi). Each artist will make a new work for Wellington public art space Masons Screen, which will be exhibited from November 2021. Each applicant offered expanded responses to the site, stretching from past to present, from harbour to shore, from Pōneke and all the way to Tāmaki.
