HUAKINA: TO OPEN
21 September - 1 December 2019 | Mitre 10 Mega Create Gallery
This exhibition is a rare opportunity to view work made by prisoner artists from around New Zealand alongside well-known guest artists including John Walsh, Wi Taepa, Nigel Brown and Flox.
Curated by The Learning Connexion all artists received an identical wooden box to respond to, each exploring the limits of their own creative potential.
The resulting works are expressive, original and enchanting and shines a light on prison art in New Zealand.
