  an exhibition

Recent paintings and drawings by Lorene Taurerewa is featured in the exhibition "A Turn of the Wheel" at the Malcolm Smith Gallery from 23 January- 25 February, 2017

With the radical break of abstract art in the 20th Century, how do contemporary artists embrace the idea of storytelling? How do they employ narrative to explore history and identity, among other trenchant themes? For these artists, storytelling does not always require plots, characters or settings; rather, narrative potential lies in everyday objects and materials, and their embedded cultural associations. In projects created through extensive research, the artists in A Turn of the Wheel uncover layers of meaning, turning to individual experience as a means of sharing stories, both real and fictional.

Artists: Kushana Bush, Jon Carapiet, Quishile Charan, Lok Chitrakar, Tessa Laird, Lorene Taurerewa, Sam Thomas and Shurti Yatri
