colonial institutions after resigning
The Māori Arts curator who resigned unexpectedly after putting together Auckland Art Gallery's largest exhibition of indigenous work, is calling on arts institutions to be better at sharing power.
Nigel Borell has claimed "major issues" over the level of control he had surrounding his landmark exhibition Toi Tū Toi Ora.
He said ensuring diversity was still a challenge for all arts institutions.
Borell's resignation was a shock to many, as he had a pioneering role in exhibiting over 300 pieces of indigenous art pieces by more than 100 artists in Toi Tū Toi Ora.
