With Madeleine Gifford
Available by appointment only.
Hear about exhibition highlights and behind-the-scenes stories with Curator and Exhibitions Manager Madeleine Gifford.
Storytelling as koha: consolidating community memories draws from decades of artist Tuafale Tanoa’i’s career as an interdisciplinary artist, community documenter and independent archivist. Tanoa’i’s practice works to provide visibility to communities and people that are often misrepresented in mainstream society. This is done through generating a living archive of recorded interviews, photographs and sound recordings, which are then presented within a performative installation framework. The scope of this archive ranges from the political to personal, pertaining to Pacific, Māori, and LGBTQI communities.
