In this issue of Bulletin Kāi Tahu artist Turumeke Harrington talks with Kommi Tamati-Elliffe (Kāi Tahu / Te-Āti-Awa / Taranaki) and Kirsty Dunn (Te Aupōuri / Te Rarawa / Ngāpuhi) about her practice, collaborative relationships, Kāi Tahu stories and kaupapa, and writer and editor Gwynneth Porter responds to London-based artist Francis Upritchard’s Paper, Creature, Stone exhibition. Curator Melanie Oliver looks at Alicia Frankovich’s ambitious Atlas of Anti-Taxonomies project, which asks us to consider new and sometimes uncomfortable ways of relating and assigning value to the other objects and beings we share our world with. Expanding upon our The Moon and the Manor House exhibition, University of Canterbury senior lecturer in Art History and Theory Rosie Ibbotson examines the ideals and motivations of the Arts and Crafts movement in New Zealand. And curator Peter Vangioni looks at the manifesto of the Vorticist movement, BLAST!, and the radical nature of its design and typography. Our My Favourite comes from Christchurch-based designer and Flying Nun alumni Lesley Maclean, who selects a work by Robert Herdman-Smith from the collection of our sister institution, Akaroa Museum. And our Pagework is supplied by Nina Oberg Humphries, who has recently been featured in a new display in our refreshed collection exhibition Te Wheke.
