Tungaru: The Kiribati Project.

Chris Charteris and Jeff Smith.

Auckland War Memorial Museum

05 July — 23 November

Mon to Sun 10am - 5pm, free with museum entry

With support from Creative New Zealand, ‘Tungaru: The Kiribati Project’ connects the work of two contemporary artists, Chris Charteris and Jeff Smith, with treasures from the Museum’s Kiribati collections.

The project was born out of Chris’ desire to return to Kiribati, to meet his family and to experience life on these tiny strips of atoll in the Pacific. Also featured is the work of photographer Tony Whincup and Kiribati language translation by Kaetaeta Watson.
