Mairangi Arts Centre - Auckland, New Zealand
Portraiture is a collaborative exhibition bringing together sixteen artists from The Artists Village (TAV), Singapore, and sixteen artists from Mairangi Arts Centre on the occasion of 54 years of diplomatic relations between our two countries.
The exhibition is aimed at establishing a cross-cultural exchange of ideas around identity and representation through the lens of 32 artists from New Zealand and Singapore. With the steady rise of populism in the global political stage, and the resulting proliferation of xenophobic voices in the mainstream, we hope to provide a counter balance of positive expressions of cultural identity, by bringing together and celebrating the different ways in which we view ourselves, and thereby learning more about each other.
