PAWA x RAT WORLD: Opening Night
Brooke Pou (Ngāpuhi, Ngāi Te Rangi) introduces the opening night of Performance Art Week Aotearoa with astute reflections on the medium and insightful responses to the opening artists: “This exhibition is notably one of the few dedicated to performance artists in a world that has historically disregarded performance as an art form”.
Pou is a curator from Te Whanganui-a-Tara. She is currently Curator at Enjoy Contemporary Art Space while completing her Masters thesis in Art History. Her research and writing interests include wāhine Māori and Moana artists, exhibitions and curators, as well as global Indigeneity, connections throughout Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa, textile art and performance.
