Tūrangawaewae spans historical portraiture to contemporary practice, with art works that inspire and provoke, question and console. Tūrangawaewae are the places, communities, and ideas that give us a sense of belonging.
Drawn from Te Papa's extensive collection of New Zealand painting, sculpture, and photography, Tūrangawaewae: Art and New Zealand explores questions of art, identity, and cross-cultural exchange.
The exhibition features works by Rita Angus, Colin McCahon, Shane Cotton, Gottfried Lindauer, Len Lye, and Robyn Kahukiwa and many other iconic New Zealand artists.
