Rock Art: Tradition and Change
November 9, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - November 27, 2019 @ 4:00 pm
This exhibition features images of ancient rock art, or cave paintings, discovered in sites around Aotearoa. It shows how these images have been, and continue to be, referenced in contemporary works by both Māori and Pākehā.
Rock Art Aotearoa touches on many issues, such as colonisation, cultural appropriation, the sanctity of tradition versus the inevitable metamorphosis/ evolution of cultural forms and symbols and the subsequent subversion of history.
