Introducing He Iti

We are delighted to welcome He Iti and six emerging galleries and their artists to the Mezzanine of The Cloud for Aotearoa Art Fair from 16-20 November 2022.

He Iti, is a name gifted to the Fair, by Hoea! Gallery (Tūranganui-a-Kiwa Gisborne) for the section of new galleries and artist-run-spaces.

In what has the potential to be an overwhelming or intimidating environment for ourselves and other small or new galleries, we wanted the space to have a name that made us feel comforted, safe and acknowledged. He iti, refers to the whakatauki Ahakoa he iti, he pounamu which suggests that though something might seem small or insignificant it may in fact be the greatest treasure. It speaks to inclusion and an altering of power dynamics.’ – Hoea! Gallery 2021

Hoea! Gallery will be joined in He Iti by The Den (Ōtautahi Christchurch) and mothermother (Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland), along with three new galleries from Naarm Melbourne; Futures, Haydens and Discordia.

To support these emerging and experimental artists at the Fair, purchase your tickets online and save on the door pricing.
