Ralph Hotere was a prolific figure in New Zealand art through the late 20th Century, charting his journeys around Aotearoa and the world and reflecting on his experiences, identity and politics through his art.
This exhibition at the Christchurch Art Gallery, produced in partnership with the Dunedin Public Art Gallery, is the first major survey of Hotere’s career, bringing together works from collections all over the country. These include works of political protest, such as the Aramoana series created in response to a proposed smelting site, as well as landmark works such as Black Phoenix and Godwit/Kuaka.
Through Ātete, Hotere’s vision and artistic achievements will be introduced to a new generation.
