Billy Apple in collaboration with Tame Iti


Billy Apple is currently presenting a collaborative work with Tame Iti at Ruatoki, coordinated by James McCarthy. Apple's contribution is installed in Te Ranimoaho, Te Rewarewa Pa. It's another iteration, this time in Maori, of his Basic Needs text work (food water shelter clothing), but this time he has added Tuamanako which introduces an element of hope.

Our next exhibition is by Hong Kong-Based artist Yuk King Tan. It was scheduled to open on Tuesday 20 August but the protests at Hong Kong airport are affecting flights out of the city and the artist is not sure when she will arrive to install. We'll be updating details as they come to hand.

Collaboration with Artspace

Collaboration with Artspace

On 1 August Starkwhite staged an event with Artspace, which was part of Whakamaui: Recovery Positions, a series of installations and events proposed by artist and academic Mark Harvey in collaboration with others that consider cultural and political tensions and disunity contextualised by the work of Guy Ngan. Read more… The Starkwhite event was a collaboration between Harvey and artist Adrienne Wong who recreated the signage of her family's grocery business on our window (her family's business was located in the space adjacent to Starkwhite) as a setting for a talk on their family history and the challenges faced by Chinese New Zealanders

Fiona Pardington at historic Alberton House


In June, historic Alberton will host an exhibition of photographs and site-specific installation by New Zealand artist Fiona Pardington that speaks of what is precious and valued. Taku Toi Kahurangi / My Precious Jewel presents photographs of taonga Māori in Alberton’s opulent ballroom, an elegantly furnished parlour in the 1863 homestead. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to see taonga/ treasures of two cultures together and re-presented from the viewpoint of one of New Zealand’s most celebrated artists. The photographs will be accompanied by a bespoke installation created by the artist in Alberton’s 19th century glass vitrine combining objects and artefacts from Alberton’s collection with treasures from Fiona Pardington’s personal collection. The project has been curated by Kelly Carmichael and coincides with Pardington's Starkwhite exhibition TIKI: Orphans of Maoriland.
