Paemanu: Ngāi Tahu Contemporary Visual Arts was formed by a group of established Ngāi Tahu contemporary visual art professionals, dedicated to advancing Ngāi Tahu visual culture through creative and innovative artistic expression.

 

Paemanu is independent of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu but supports and confirms the initiatives and aspirations of our iwi and hapū.

Our Ngāi Tahu artists are advocates of fundamental cultural values including whakapapa and wairua. We explore and communicate these concepts, ideas, and values through contemporary artist practises.  

We believe that contemporary visual art practice is a way to engage, investigate, and celebrate Ngāi Tahutanga.
