Toi Matarau is a Māori art gallery located within the Māoriland Hub in Ōtaki Aotearoa. At Toi Matarau the artist is part of a Māori collective encompassing disciplines both traditional and contemporary. It is a space where the art of tamariki is proudly displayed alongside some of our most venerated Māori artists.
The Māoriland Hub is a whare tapere – a home for the Indigenous, a home for the arts, a house of inspiration and storytelling where economic, social and cultural wellbeing is supported.
An exhibition of new works by students and staff from Toihoukura School of Māori Visual Art and Design
The Māoriland gallery Toi Matarau is to host the second of its 2020 Matariki exhibitions with new works from students of the highly respected Gisborne based art school Toihoukura.
The Gallery and online exhibition called WHAREHOU is showcasing emerging Māori artists and supporting the broader context of contemporary Māori art education and Māori art practice.
The Māoriland Hub is a home to the Māoriland Film Festival, Māoriland Charitable Trust and Toi Matarau Gallery.
It is a home for the Indigenous, a home for the imagination, a home for ideas and conversations – he whare taketake, he whare tapere, he whare kōrero.
It is open year-round in Ōtaki Village showcasing Indigenous creativity and innovation through film, art, technology, kōrero and more.
A drawcard for visitors to the Kāpiti Coast, the Māoriland Hub is a vibrant space to create, learn and be inspired.
