Coconut Water engages contested sites of movement and memory spanning shifting lands and waters right across the Moananui a Kiwa, Kiwa’s Great Ocean. Contemporary art practice in still and moving image, sculpture, print and performance address artists’ concerns, including indigeneity, displacement, plantation colonisation, ecological shift, memory, healing, and cultural renewal. Guest curator, Léuli Eshraghi, has been engaged by the MBRC Art Gallery Network for this exhibition.
