GRAHAM, Brett
Show info Hide info

Brett Graham holds a Doctor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Arts and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Hawaiʻi. His practice centres on large-scale works or installations that explore indigenous histories, philosophies, and politics. He ‘conceives his Māori whakapapa (ancestry) as a Pasifika/Moana identity and affiliated with a global network of indigenous and non-Western peoples’.

Graham lives and works in Waiuku, near Tāmaki Makaurau, but has travelled widely, holding residences throughout Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa and abroad. His work featured in the inaugural Honolulu Biennial (2017) and the 17th Biennale of Sydney (2010). Collaborations with Rachael Rakena were presented at the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007) and the 15th Biennale of Sydney (2006). He is the son of Fred Graham.
