Rita Angus Retrospective at Te Papa
Originally slated to be the first major retrospective of a kiwi artist on foreign shores, the show in London's Royal Academy of Art was unfortunately cancelled due to COVID-19, however, we're thrilled to see the show go ahead in Wellington, the city Rita spent much of her working life.
The entire team embrace Rita's pioneering spirit and prints of Rita's work take pride of place throughout the hotel's hallways and all of our Premier Suites. A mural of her striking pseudo-self-portrait 'Rutu' is reproduced on a grand scale on the side of our building by graphic artist Sean Duffel.
The exhibition is free entry at Te Papa and runs from 18 December 2021 - 25 April 2022.
