Te Reo Pākehā

Te reo Māori, like any language is important to the vitality and meaning of culture. The exhibition Te reo Pākehā asks how we understand these meanings when looking at Te reo Māori as a non-Māori or as a Māori disconnected from learning the language in the home? Working across installation and painting, artists Martin Awa Clarke Langdon and Elliot Collins converse and reflect on the power of language, place and variation of 'meanings' we have access to.
