"PARIHAKA"
2000-08-26 until 2000-12-19
Wellington City Gallery
Wellington, , NZ

This nationally significant exhibition will commemorate and explore one of the major historical events in the history of Aotearoa New Zealand; the invasion of Parihaka, Taranaki by Pakeha soldiers in 1881. The exhibition will consider the events leading up to the invasion and the immense strength and spirit of the Parihaka community which continues today. One hundred years of art, poetry and waiata will be brought together for the exhibition.

This project will comprise a gallery-wide exhibition at City Gallery, which will include existing artworks depicting the story of Parihaka and its leaders, Te Whiti o-Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi. New pieces about these subjects will be commissioned from both Maori and Pakeha artists. These will be augmented by historical and contemporary photographs.

The exhibition will be further complemented by a major publication and a television documentary.

Parihaka is a joint project between City Gallery, Wellington and the Trustees of Parihaka Paa. Sponsorship to be confirmed.
