Exhibition: Fehokotaki

St Paul St Gallery in partnership with Vā Moana Research Cluster presents ‘Fehokotaki,’ curated by ‘Uhila Kanongata’a Nai | April 12-May 12 in Gallery Two

Featuring work from Manuha’apai Vaeatangitau, ‘Ahota’e’iloa Toetu’u, ‘Aloisia Ngata, David Leone Vaea, Vula To’ofohe, and ‘Uhila Kanongata’a Nai

The title of this exhibition belongs to the Tongan phrase “fehokotaki ‘i ha vaha’a taimi ‘i ha feitu’u kehekehe,” and responds to the shifting spaces and multi-layered concepts of time specific to Moana peoples across our region. 

Following University guidelines the Gallery will be slowly reopening to the public over the coming weeks, with a celebration of ‘Fehokotaki’ plus forthcoming programming set for Thursday May 5.

Many thanks to Tautai Pacific Arts Trust for providing generous support toward this project.
