From renowned Māori curator Ngahiraka Mason, A Very Different World is a platform to focus on wellbeing and a much-needed glimmer of hope for the future.

Who is not seeking a breath of fresh air? Sparking this idea is a belief in a second chance for humanity. If creative ideas are the lifeblood of artists, Covid-19 is directing us to untold opportunities to express forbearance.

Experience changes-up everything. Offering this direction is a cadre of intergenerational artists from Aotearoa, Tonga, Canada and Hawai‘i, with striking photography and painting, never-before-seen sculpture, textiles, ceramic, film and an interactive installation.

Work by the following artists will feature in the exhibition, which opens at Te Tuhi on 27 February. For information on how the opening will work under different alert levels, visit tetuhi.art.
