Artist to discuss link between Maori art, civil rights at BYU Sept. 21

Maori artist Rangi Kipa will offer "An Insider’s Reflections on the Maori Sovereignty Movement" Wednesday, Sept. 21, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University. The event is free, and the public is welcome.

Kipa’s personal history and artistic practice have been closely intertwined with the rights of New Zealand’s indigenous Maori population which, in many ways, drew on the experience and strategies of the American civil rights movements of the 1960s and '70s.

His work is included in significant collections in New Zealand (Te Papa, Dowse Art Museum, Puke Ariki) and has been exhibited at Goff + Rosenthal in New York City and at the inaugural exhibition of the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art in Colorado. He is a graduate of the Maraeroa Carving School in Poriua, New Zealand, and he received a bachelor's degree from Waikato University in New Zealand and a master of Maori visual arts from Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand.

This lecture will be archived at kennedy.byu.edu/archive. For more information, contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652 or lee_simons@byu.edu.
