A great deal of New Zealand's archaeological heritage is not beneath the soil, but instead is buried deep in the stores of museums and universities, waiting to be revisited.' - Gerard O'Regan
Kā Paroro o Haumumu: Coastal Flows, Coastal Incursions is a transdisciplinary art project that reconsiders landscapes and material removed from Aotearoa’s South Island by Archaeologists in the 1960s and 1970s.
Guests Ron Bull Jr, Aunty Dale Chapman, Alex Monteith and Gerard O’Regan explore how collaborative projects can address the effects and legacy of historical museum collecting practices. Hosted by Associate Professor Huhana Smith (Head of Massey University’s Whiti o Rehua School of Art at Toi Rauwhārangi College of Creative Arts).
This live streamed talk will commence at 10.15am AEST (Queensland time) on Sun 5 Dec, via QAGOMA's YouTube channel. To view the live stream click here.
