John Pule: Hauaga (Arrivals) is the first monographic exhibition of Puleâ€™s art shown in a public gallery and promises to be a landmark survey of work by a contemporary Pacific artist. This exhibition demonstrates how Puleâ€™s work reaches across art forms and cultures, drawing from a rich range of historical and present-day sources from the Pacific, New Zealand and beyond.
John Pule: Hauaga (Arrivals) features 16 of John Puleâ€™s large canvases and 33 works on paper. It surveys his career from 1991â€”the year he travelled back to his birthplace, Niue, and reconnected with the traditional Niuean art of hiapo. A dramatic series of recent works is also included, allowing the exhibition to span 20 years of the artistâ€™s production.
