Event details

Doris de Pont is co-curator of ‘Moana Currents: Dressing Aotearoa Now’.

Join her on a journey through the history of what we wear and how we adorn ourselves in Aotearoa today.

During this floor-talk Doris will unpick the back-story of these garments:

  • A dress by Trelise Cooper that harks back to the missionaries.
  • A glamorous gown by Tukua Turia and Karen Walker that has its origins in

    the sampler.

  • A hei tiki by Neil Adcock that can dance.
  • Steve Hall's urban lavalava.
