This Joyous Chaotic Place: He Waiata Tangi-ā-Tahu, Celebrating the life and work of Heather McPherson, Mokopopaki Gallery and Spiral, 2019

This magnificent book & catalogue was launched at dawn today at Mokopōpaki Gallery on Karangahape Road in Tamaki Makaurau.

It contextualises Heather McPherson’s poetics in terms of her involvement with Spiral and The Women’s Gallery. It’s wonderfully illustrated. A meticulously referenced legacy document and a most luscious record of a period of cutting edge aesthetic ferment.

So much of the art and literature we enjoy today in Aotearoa~NZ is indebted to the groundbreaking innovators chronicled here.

Here’s a link to the gallery website.
