PAREKŌWHAI, Michael
Show info Hide info

Michael Parekōwhai graduated from the University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Arts in 1990 with a degree in sculpture and immediately began exhibiting. His first solo exhibition was held in 1993. His work tends to explore the complexities of cultural interaction. It has alluded to the work of Colin McCahon and Gordon Walters, to Marcel Duchamp’s conceptualism, David Smith’s formalism, and to the ‘neo-geo’, or neo-geometric conceptualism, movement.
