Meet Rebecca and Megan and hear about their interests and current research at Te Papa.

Rebecca Rice: Lindauer’s Māori at Home and Abroad
Lindauer’s Māori portraits played a central role in exhibitions at home and abroad in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Explore this history in the lead-up to the first major ‘OE’ of Lindauer’s paintings in one hundred years, an exhibition opening at the Altes National Galerie, Berlin in November 2014.

Megan Tamati-Quennell: Unsettling the Line – The Relationship of Customary and Contemporary Māori Art
This talk focuses on modern and contemporary Māori art, the redefinition of taonga as art from the time of the exhibition Te Māori and some curatorial approaches that have attempted to collapse the divisions between customary and contemporary Māori art or at least unsettle them.

Each curator will speak for about 25 minutes on their chosen topic, followed by questions and an opportunity for further discussion over a glass of wine.

Registration required. To register, use the ‘Book now’ button or phone the office on (04) 381 7051.
