Tiki Tour is still the same group, however they added a lot of Kiwi songs and a few Maori singalong songs. Brilliant sound: Jazz duo Vermillion entertain at the Upper Hutt Cossie Club on Sunday from 6pm, before the Rugby World Cup final. NZ and Mexican art meet in exhibit For prayer: Raramuri Prayer House (2006), lambda print, Eduardo Oses. Opening this week at Expressions is the photographic exhibition entitled Of Colour: Indigenous Photography from Aotearoa to Mexico, curated by Reuben Friend, Curator of Maori and Pacific art at City Gallery in Wel- lington. Of Colour takes a look through a cultural lens to experience the diverse palettes of everyday life and culture. Combining the photographic works of two Mexican photographers, Alejandra Vergara and Eduardo Oses, and two New Zealand photographers, Aimee Ratana (Ngai Tuhoe) and Terry Koloamatangi Klavenes (Tongan, Norwegian), the exhibition explores ideas around ethnicity and culture, and the way custom- ary rituals and traditions both empower and bind indigenous communities. Having a strong sense of com- munity becomes a source of power for marginalised communities who often find themselves on the lower end of the socio-economic spec- trum; cultural rituals and performances, costumes and attire, arts and crafts all provide a source of colour and rejuvenation in times of adversity and even grief,'' curator Reuben Friend said. The exhibition is a showcase of photography taken in various indigenous communities in New Zealand and Mexico, demon- strating the diversity range of cre- ative expression and the resilience of these communities to adapt to change while seeking to retain a sense of autonomous cultural identity in a post colonial society. The images go from small town New Zealand marae and Maori communities documented by Aimee Ratana, to Terry Koloa- matangi Klavene's gritty urban street scenes of Tongan diasporic communities in South Auckland, all the way to Mexico and the Raramuri, Nahautl, Wixarika (Huichol) and other indigenous communities who share a con- nection to the Pacific Ocean. Alejandra Vergara was born in Mexico City in 1983. She studied at the Carlos Septien Garcia School of Journalism, Mexico City, and the Jose Marti Journalism School, La Habana, Cuba. Her photographic practice is concerned with capturing the colours of culture in fine detail with a particular interest in portraits of children. Aimee Ratana (Ngai Tuhoe) was raised in the Waikato and com- pleted a masters degree in Maori visual arts from Massey Univer- sity, Palmerston North. Her pho- tography is concerned with politi- cal and personal narratives represented through an indigen- ous lens. Eduardo Oses was born in Mexico City in 1980. He studied photography at Escuela Activa de Fotografia, Mexico, and is interested in photography which explores texture and detail, or as he describes it, the flavours of colour and the magic in people.'' Terry Koloamatangi Klavenes (Tongan, Norwegian) was born in Tonga but raised in Auckland, New Zealand and has a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the Manukau Institute of Technology School of Visual Arts. He was the supreme award recipient of the 2007 Martin Hughes contemporary pacific art award. His photography often looks at contemporary urban Pacific expressions of culture and identity. Of Colour closes on November 20.
