Paraikete Threads

Jeanine Clarkin, Noa Blanket Co and Mataaho Collective.

2 MARCH – 2 JUNE 2024


Blankets hold many meanings in Indigenous cultures. Paraikete Threads looks at how contemporary Māori artists are working with the stories, histories and knowledge systems embedded in the blanket. From sustainable and upcycled fashion designs, luxury blankets and repurposing mink blankets as space for wānanga, this exhibition considers how artists respond to the many threads of blanket history in te ao Māori and the new meanings produced through contemporary practice.
