He Rourou for 25 January 2010

From He Rourou

East Coast artist Tawera Tahuri is the first Maori ever to exhibit at the prestigious Florence Biennale. The symposium exhibits over two thousand-500 pieces of work by hundreds of invited artists from all over the world. Tahuri is an arts lecturer and mother of six from a small township just north of Gisborne, and she spoke with He Rourou producer Ana Tapiata about the Italian trip and her unique exhibition.
