Page Galleries represented artists Reuben Paterson and Ngataiharuru Taepa are featured in a current exhibition Kaleidoscope at Te Papa - Toi Art. This exhibition is temporarily closed due to Covid-19 national shutdown.
Abstract art is often presented as a 20th-century European invention. Kaleidoscope turns that on its head and celebrates how the exploration of shape, colour and pattern have captured our imaginations in the Pacific.
Kaleidoscope: Abstract Aotearoa features works by Rebecca Baumann, Gordon Bennett, Stella Brennan, Helen Calder, Steve Carr, Julian Dashper, Mikala Dwyer, Ralph Hotere, Lonnie Hutchinson, Richard Killeen, Len Lye, Milan Mrkusich, Ani O’Neill, Reuben Paterson, Bridget Riley, Theo Schoon, Ian Scott, Tiffany Singh, Carl Sydow, Ngataiharuru Taepa, Anaha Te Rahui, Geoff Thornley, Sopolemalama Filipe Tohi, and Gordon Walters.
