    Nohoaka Toi – Ngāi Tahu Artists in Residence | CoCA

    Curated by senior Paemanu artists, Nohoaka Toi takes visitors on a journey of Ngāi Tahu visual expression from rock art to the present day. Site-specific works, large-scale projections and sculptural interventions explore whakapapa (lineage), wairua (spirit), and the vibrancy of contemporary Ngāi Tahu visual arts.

    Nohoaka Toi involves some of Aotearoa’s most significant artists, including Ross Hemera, Areta Wilkinson, Simon Kaan, Lonnie Hutchinson, Peter Robinson, Neil Pardington, Rachael Rakena, Fayne Robinson, Ranui Ngarimu, Nathan Pohio, Louise Potiki Bryant, Martin Awa Clarke Langdon, Kiri Jarden, and many more established and emerging Ngāi Tahu artists.

    The exhibition transforms CoCA into a nohoaka seasonal camp, beginning with the artists occupying the gallery prior to the exhibition opening, and continuing throughout — you are warmly welcomed and encouraged to participate.
