    Toi Māori exhibition: expressions of interest

    E ngā mana e ngā reo e ngā karangamaha o te whare pora nau mai, whakahokia mai ki tēnei purongo.

    The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū with Ko Te Pouaranga | iwi support is seeking a curator / artist / co-ordinator to develop a toi Māori exhibition at The Suter. The exhibition is scheduled for 14 June- 14 September 2025 for presentation in the original Bishop Suter memorial gallery space within The Suter.

    The curator(s) of this exhibition will receive a fee and have the technical and administrative support of The Suter staff and resources to conceive and develop an exhibition with a strong focus on Te Tauihu iwi that will appeal to locals, as well as national and international visitors. Ideally the

    curator(s) of this exhibition will have experience working with / or exhibiting toi Māori and will have strong connections within Te Tauihu iwi.

    The theme | Kaupapa of the exhibition will be up to the curator, but could focus on (but is not limited to) one or more of the following:

    • Carving
    • Digital art
    • Painting 
    • A material e.g. stone, bone
    • Tukutuku 
    • Tāniko
    • And/ or a kaupapa as agreed by Ko Te Pouaranga Iwi komiti to The Suter

    The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū is the Nelson | Tasman region’s public art gallery, and is a venue for displaying historic and contemporary art and craft from across Aotearoa. This toi Māori exhibition will be the third in a series of iwi led projects that have focussed on Te Tauihu; to date these exhibitions have been He Raranga Kōrero and Kanohi Kitea (the seen face).

    Expressions of Interest close 15 February 2024

    And we will be looking to select someone to begin the project from March (tentatively presenting draft proposals to Ko Te Pouaranga in early March 2024)
