The new exhibition, Takiri: An Unfurling, is opening with a special late-night art program taking place on Tuesday, 15 October.

With a lineup of talks, kai, poetry slams, live music and more, the event hosts an array of activities and entertainment all celebrating New Zealand art and history.

Takiri: An Unfurling will be the largest temporary art exhibition put on by the New Zealand Maritime Museum in the 26 years since it opened. It looks back at Aotearoa 250 years ago, when Maori and Europeans first encountered each other on New Zealand soil.

Our country's unique history is explored through contemporary works by seven artists. The artists utilise sound, photography, illustration, cloth-making, weaving and sculpture to consider the events that took place and the impact they still have today.

At the event, attendees can listen to talks from artists Chris Charteris, Jasmine Togo Brisby and curators Linda Tyler and Bridget Reweti, as well as a poetry performance from Te Kahu Rolleston.

The evening will also include artist Nikau Hinden's blue bead exchange project, which is a chance to get involved in the art and think about encounter and exchange.

Tickets are free but bookings are recommended.
