Lisa Reihana: Emissaries - Catalogue

Lisa Reihana: Emissaries is accompanied by an exhibition catalogue of the same name, available in both hard copy and eBook formats.
Exquisitely designed and illustrated, the catalogue highlights the ambitious artwork in Pursuit of Venus [infected], 2015–17– the centrepiece of exhibition Lisa Reihana: Emissaries, Aotearoa New Zealand’s presentation at the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
Comprising seven essays by leading scholars and curators, a lively conversation with the artist, and insights into the career of Lisa Reihana (Ngāpuhi, Ngātihine, Ngāi Tu), the book provides a captivating account of the sources that influenced the artist’s expansive creative endeavour and how the Venice exhibition might be understood within the context of transnational indigenous art making.
The essays are by Rhana Devenport, Dame Anne Salmond, Nikos Papastergiadis, Jens Hoffmann, Vivienne Webb, Andrew Clifford, Keith Moore, as well as a conversation between Lisa Reihana and interdisciplinary artist Brook Andrew.
Hard copies of the exhibition catalogue can be purchased from the Auckland Art Gallery.
The Photobook App is available from or via the Baker Douglas storefront app on iTunes and Google Play.
