From the introduction by Nigel Reading: “In 2001 at the invitation of the Māori, I visited New Zealand and was further introduced to the Māori culture by many of the artists in this exhibition, experiencing their warm hospitality, guidance and knowledge. During this visit I quickly realized how privileged we were to be working with so many master artists and how deep their commitment was to their culture and in their desire to expose Māori Art to the world. The inevitable next step was to curate an exhibition that would become a benchmark to promote their art in North America.
“Two years later, we have succeeded and assembled one of the largest ever collections of contemporary Māori art to be seen in this continent, providing an excellent overview that showcases the very best in all mediums, including ceramics, painting, weaving, jewelry, carving and sculpture in various materials.”
