Matariki is a season to celebrate the land for the next year. We take this time to acknowledge a collaboration and co-edition with Ngā Aho on our 20th Issue. This collaboration connects us professionally, spiritually, physically and culturally with the unique identity and landscape of Māori creative practitioners. The Kaupapa of this issue is inspired by the essence of ‘new beginnings’, which provides a platform to explore te ihi of who we are, featuring ten Māori artists and designers.
These indigenous practitioners are at the forefront of Māori contemporary art - (mahi toi) and we are fortunate enough to catch an insight into their world as they generously share with us through their art, their cultural expression and visual identity.
We celebrate our 20th issue with the creative community by our side and take this opportunity to remember the manuhiri who have given content, shared their stories and expertise. This stunning 116pg edition showcases the work of ten incredible Māori artists & designers and the process and thinking that sits behind what we see.
