Maori artists visit BYU for art discussion and exhibit Sept. 21

Thirty-four visual arts faculty and students from Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi, New Zealand, will discuss Tau Marumaru, a collaborative exhibit to be displayed at Brigham Young University, during a panel discussion Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 3 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

“These internationally known artists have hosted BYU students for the past three years,” said Joseph E. Ostraff, organizer of the exchange and a professor of visual arts at BYU. “We are thrilled to have them come to our campus and let us reciprocate.”

Visiting Awanuiarangi faculty will include more than 15 artists specializing in ceramics, clay, painting and carving.

The title of the exhibit, Tau Marumaru, is Maori. Maru means the crossing of thoughts pertaining to the subject of the day, and Marumaru is a discussion within oneself and with another. Tau implies being joined, completed or in agreement.

The exhibit features contemporary and traditional Maori art. The joint faculty and student exhibit will open Saturday, Sept. 24, at 6 p.m. in Gallery 303 located south of the Pardoe Drama Theatre in the Harris Fine Arts Center. It will run through the end of the month.

For more information on the exhibit, please contact the gallery staff at (801) 422-2881 or gallery303@byu.edu.
