Te Tuhi is one of New Zealand’s foremost contemporary art spaces and a leader in supporting experimental practice. Te Tuhi has a growing international reputation for its ambitious programme, characterised by risk-taking with a strong awareness of social, political and environmental issues.
Te Tuhi has a long history of providing opportunities for artists of all levels with a curatorial strategy that spans showcasing local emerging artists to producing projects by leading national and international figures, balancing group and solo exhibitions. This strategic approach prioritises contemporary Māori and Pacific art practice.
Te Tuhi’s primary focus is on commissioning ambitious new work by creating stimulating contexts for artists to respond to and work within. Te Tuhi emphasises artistic process and practice, always placing the artist at the core of its programme. Te Tuhi presents exhibitions at its Pakuranga gallery and through its offsite programme in Auckland and beyond. All Te Tuhi exhibitions are free, as are most of its public programme of events.
At the Auckland Art Fair 2016 Te Tuhi will present a limited edition by Rangituhia Hollis who is currently exhibiting at Te Tuhi in the exhibition The Hive Hums With Many Minds. A selection of tote bags made from decommissioned Te Tuhi Billboard Project art works and recent publications will also be available.
