NZ Condition

9 October 2011 - 21 April 2012

9 October 2011 - mid April 2012

Guest curator: Karl Chitham, Collection Curator, University of Waikato, Hamilton, NZ.

The Trust Waikato Collection is based upon the indigenous and historical interface that occurred within the Waikato, existing to amass and gather a visually rich history belonging specifically to the Waikato and Tainui. The interactions in the Waikato between the tangata whenua (indigenous people) and the Colonial forces are still being negotiated and examined today.

Karl Chitham was invited as guest curator by the Waikato Museum to open up this conversation a little more in depth, using works from the Trust Waikato Collection to create avenues into the forming of nation-hood in Aotearoa New Zealand today.
