Koorero Toi: Hiria Anderson – Toi is Rongoaa

26 November 2022

1pm to 2pm

Free but registration required

Book online

Artist Hiria Anderson will discuss her creative practice and her new series of paintings which feature in our exhibition Toi is Rongoaa.

Working from her studio on Ootorohanga where her grandparents lived, Hiria captures the poeticism of the everyday and with it the interplay between tikanga Maaori and contemporary municipal life. Her tribal affiliations include Ngaati Maniapoto, Ngaati Apakura, Ngaati Rereahu.

Attendance is free for this artist talk but please register online as numbers are limited.

Toi is Rongoaa celebrates fourteen contemporary Maaori artists who believe in the importance of creative practice to their wellbeing. The invited artists have been supported by Creative New Zealand to make new work and share this essential kaupapa with our community.
