Congratulations to Tanu Gago (mnzm) on receiving the 2020 Creative New Zealand Pacific Contemporary Artist Award!


Tanu Gago, Savage in the Garden, 2019, Photographic print, UC-DEP-1240, UC Art Collection, Macmillan Brown Library.


This image is an art work from Gago's SAVAGE IN THE GARDEN series produced during his Macmillan Brown Centre for Pacific Studies residency in 2018. It was exhibited at the Physics Room Gallery in 2019 alongside a group of images and audio recordings responding to provocations about what it means to be a Queer Pacific Island man and centres queerness as a site for exploration and a pressure point for open discussion.
