The work of seminal, pioneering New Zealand modernist artist Rita Angus returns in triumph to the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in late 2021, in a major show of more than 100 works from throughout her career. This extensive catalogue includes all the works in the show and is anchored by a major essay by Angus’ biographer, Jill Trevelyan, which gives deep insight into Angus’ life and practice. Adrian Locke, the Royal Academy, London, curator who was helming the major Angus show there until pandemic intervened, contributes a significant text that puts her work into international context, assessing her alongside contemporary women artist peers such as Anita Malfatti, Amrita Sher-Gil, Irma Stern, Emily Carr, Frida Kahlo, Henrietta Shore and Georgia OKeeffe. Short pieces by well-known New Zealanders, including Gaylene Preston, Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Fay Weldon and Robin White, who each examine the force of Anguss work and its impact on them, complete this rich celebration of Anguss life.

Surrealist Art at Te Papa | He Toi Pohewa Masterpieces from Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

Surrealism emerged in Paris in the early 1920s, at first mainly through literature and poetry and later through writing, drawing, painting, photography, performance, exhibitions and game-playing.Developed by artists and writers from around Europe, Surrealist ideas were radical; the Surrealists hoped to launch a revolution of the mind that would lead to profound social and political change.Surrealist Art at Te Papa | He Toi Pohewa at Te Papa is the first major Surrealist exhibition presented in Aotearoa since the 1970s. This catalogue includes a substantial text about the Surrealist movement and its leading artists, plus all the works from the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam that appear in this exciting major show.
