Flat White, Black Pearl curated by Jim Vivieaere

Flat White, Black Pearl
Te Karanga Gallery
1 March - 22 March, 2008

Flat White, Black Pearl is being shown in Auckland's Te Karanga Gallery as part of the month-long Celebrate Pasifika festival. Atypical of your usual expectation of Pacific culture in the visual arts, it will only feature works that are in black and white.

With almost 50 artists participating in the show, there are bound to be a few surprises about how the artists have chosen to express their ‘colour’ and cultural identity when confined to neutral tones.

Rona Ngahuia Osborne's Wahine

Rona Ngahuia Osborne
25 March - 12 April, 2008

From our first breath to our last, we are wrapped in cloth. When we are at our most vulnerable, alone
with our dreams, cloth embraces us. It takes on our emotions, memories, hopes and pain. Imbued with
the wairua of the past the blanket forms intimate associations.
