Paemanu - Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu


– Ngai Tahu Contemporary Visual Arts

Kōhatu Mauri

Late 2019, Paemanu – Ngāi Tahu Contemporary Visual Arts placed three Kōhatu Mauri into the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. The Kōhatu Mauri were gifted by the three Rūnaka from the Ōtākou rohe. Their purpose is to provide inspiration and provide direction to the rōpū as Paemanu journey towards creating and exhibiting their mahi toi in the gallery in 2021.

This is a significant milestone towards the development of the exhibition and marks a key aspect in the relationship between Rūnaka, Paemanu and the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.
