First Look: NZ Artwork At Venice Biennale 2024

The 60th Venice Biennale is due to open this weekend (20 April), giving artists from all over the globe the chance to take part in the biggest arts show on the planet.

While New Zealand’s run of housing a national exhibit is broken for the 2024 edition, eight Māori artists – through eight different artwork – are still involved in the International Exhibition, Foreigners Everywhere, which runs through until November. 

The Ngā toi Māori artists involved span literal generations – from respected Kaumātua Selwyn Wilson (Ngāti Manu, Ngāti Hine), Sandy Adsett (Ngāti Pahauwera) and Fred Graham (Ngāti Koroki Kahukura, Tainui) to the next wave of powerhouse Māori creatives Brett Graham (Ngāti Koroki Kahukura, Tainui) and Mataaho Collective (Te Atiawa ki Whakarongotai, Ngāti Toa Rangātira, Ngāti Awa, Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Pūkeko, Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāi Te Rangi, Rangitāne ki Wairarapa).
