Histories − known and unknown, written and unwritten − form the basis of These stories began before we arrived, an exhibition of artwork by New Zealand and Taiwanese artists. This poetic and contemplative exhibition acknowledges the past migration of people across the Pacific, from Taiwan to Aotearoa New Zealand, by sharing stories of belonging and loss. The artworks explore themes of collective identity, land use, international trade, ancestral knowledge and societal order. Together, these works build connections between distinct histories and propose potential futures.
