In the winter edition of Bulletin we hear from writer and rongoā practitioner Arihia Latham (Kāi Tahu), who looks at celebrated Kāi Tahu artist Lonnie Hutchinson’s new project for our gallery spaces and forecourt. Matariki Williams (Tūhoe, Taranaki, Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Hauiti) offers a poetic response to Ralph Hotere’s magnificent Godwit/Kuaka, which is currently on display in Ātete (to resist). Reuben Woods explores paste-ups – a form of street art that is under-represented in recent discussions around Ōtautahi Christchurch, and other cities, as a street art destination. And Sally Blundell takes a look at artist Francis Upritchard’s recent stay as the inaugural artist in residence at the Sutton House. We are also really pleased to be able to include an interview with retired potter and former president of the Canterbury Potters’ Association, Rex Valentine. Our Pagework comes from Lonnie Hutchinson, and Ngāi Tahu writer Nic Low picks Rita Angus’s Cass as his favourite work and uses it as a springboard to explore the Canterbury High Country.
