Emily Karaka: Settlements - Art Collector

Courtesy: the artist and Orexart, Auckland

 On the eve of Ngai Tai ki Tamaki's settlement, Emily Karaka's exhibition Settlements explores the Crown’s settlement process, old land claims and Turton Deeds transactions that alienated lands and islands from the Tribes of Tamaki. As a descendant of Kiwi Tamaki (who resided on many of the volcanic cones in Tamaki) and a descendant of the Ngai Tai Rangatira Nuku (who participated in land sales deeds and signed Te Tiriti O Waitangi at Karaka Bay in Auckland in 1840), the artist confirms: Ka Mau Mahara – we will remember.

Opening: 5.30pm Tuesday 14 July 2015
Exhibition closes: 8 August 2015
Location: OREXART, 15 Putiki Street, Arch Hill Auckland NZ 1021
