Takiwā Hou: Imagining New Spaces is a programme of Māori moving image works by some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most exciting contemporary artists. Featuring over 20 individual works by 11 artists, this expansive selection reflects the notion of envisaging Indigenous spaces, moments and possibilities that are yet to come into being. Curated by Karl Chitham, Director Dowse Art Museum for Te Tuhi, this programme of works is a snapshot of the unique perspectives Indigenous artists bring to the global stage.
