Finn McCahon-Jones: Walking with McCahon

Finn McCahon-Jones is a curator and artist. Walking is an important means of exploration for him, and often serves as an archaeological process. Finn is also the grandson of painter Colin McCahon. In conversation with Te Uru Director, Andrew Clifford, Finn will talk about his grandfather’s journey works, many produced in Muriwai, as well as his own tracing of those paths. Andrew and Finn will also respond to Colin’s epic painting Gate III with a tour of the exhibition ‘A way through’ Colin McCahon’s Gate III, which closes on the day of the conference.

This presentation is part of the fourth West Auckland Heritage Conference, Destination West, which this year focuses on stories of West Auckland journeys. For conference tickets and further conference information, please visit
