In March 2017, Edith Amituanai spent five weeks as Hastings City Art Gallery’s first artist-in-residence, working with students at Kimi Ora Community School, Flaxmere. The result is #keeponkimiora, presenting a series of powerful images of the students in their everyday life and play.
This exhibition sits alongside See What I Can See, and is a selection of works from moving image and photographic artists with connections to Hawke’s Bay. These include Nova Paul, Richard Brimer, Joyce Campbell, Mark Smith, Deborah Smith, Rakai Karaitiana, Juliet Carpenter and Helena Hughes.
Co-curated by Gregory O'Brien and Sarjeant Gallery curator Greg Donson See What I Can See is a celebration of that remarkable, well-travelled, ever-changing invention – the camera – the New Zealand that it captured, and the artists who wielded it. Toured by Sarjeant Gallery Te Whare o Rehua Whanganui
