This exhibition, curated by Bruce E. Phillips does exactly what a public gallery should. It enables artists to show large works and installations and the result here is a group of singularly powerful works in a range of media.

– T. J. McNamara, New Zealand Herald

Te Tuhi is proud to present the publication THE HIVE HUMS WITH MANY MINDS. This 130-page, full colour, limited edition publication features essays by Tessa Laird, Gregory Kan and Ruth Watson, and Bruce E. Phillips, plus additional contributions by exhibiting artists such as a foldout page work by Monique Jansen, and texts by Shahriar Asdollah-Zadeh and Charlotte Drayton. The work is complemented by graphic design by Kalee Jackson.

The publication documents and extends the two-part 2016 exhibition of the same name, that explored issues of globalisation through the work of 14 Aotearoa New Zealand artists including: Louisa Afoa, Shahriar Asdollah-Zadeh, Max Bellamy, Charlotte Drayton, Rangituhia Hollis, Monique Jansen, Joanna Langford, Alex Monteith, Caroline McQuarrie, Reuben Moss, Suji Park, Mark Schroder, Salome Tanuvasa and Tim J. Veling.

Ranging from large-scale video and sculptural works to elaborate drawings and paintings, the artists provided perceptive musings on a tangled mass of interrelated issues including information control, global mobility, migration, sovereignty, colonisation, environmental destruction, urbanism, oversaturated mediascapes, social emergence and material residues of the Anthropocene.
