Curator Tours: Marie Shannon and names held in our mouths

Join us on Saturday 20 July for two curator tours through current exhibitions at Te Uru, Marie Shannon: Rooms found only in the home and names held in our mouths.

11.30am: Dunedin Public Art Gallery Curators Lucy Hammonds and Lauren Gutsell take us through the exhibition Marie Shannon: Rooms found only in the home, a Dunedin Public Art Gallery touring exhibition exploring the intersecting spheres of Shannon's practice; considering her different conceptual interests and dual focus on both photography and video.

1pm: Te Uru Curator Ioana Gordon-Smith takes us on a tour of names held in our mouths, an exhibition that highlights six artists and collectives working to revive or sustain indigenous practices, including the work of Sosefina Andy, Nikau Hindin, Louisa Humphry, Wikuki Kingi, Pacifica Mamas, Kaetaeta Watson and The Veiqia Project.

To culminate the Curator's Tour we are lucky enough to have the Turou Takitua Storytellers collective with us for an interactive experience, transporting us across the Moana with drumming, dance and ancient tales of family, laughter, love and tragedy.
