Te Kai a Te Rangatira

Oxford Street Art‘s new exhibiton ‘Te Kai a Te Rangatira’ opens on 1 July at 5.00pm with a Karakia (opening ceremony) followed by a Mihi and Waiata.

For this exhibition artists have reflected and drawn inspiration from the whakatauki (Maori proverb). The four artists for this exhibition re-connected at a Tā Moko symposium in Ōtautahi and have tribal links to Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāi Tāmanuhiri, Ngāpuhi and Ngāti Kahu.
