X Marks the Spot: Histories Negotiated

Exhibition date:

Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki

Explore the way artists have responded to the New Zealand landscape and to events in history connected with the land, including the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, the nation’s founding document. Learn how the landscape became stratified with different cultural perspectives and expectations during settlement and see how this connects distinct epochs in New Zealand’s history.

Part of New Zealand Art: Opening the Past to the Ever-changing Present | Toi Aotearoa: Mai i Mua ki te Ao Hurihuri, a series of exhibitions drawn from our collection.
