            A Queer Existence is a major documentary project that uses photographic portraiture and oral history to record the life experiences of a group of 27 gay men born since the passing of the Homosexual Law Reform Act 1986. In New Zealand, discrimination in work was outlawed in 1993,... same-sex relationships were granted legal recognition in 2005, and marriage equality followed in 2013. As a result these men have life experiences very different to earlier generations of gay New Zealand men. Even so, gay men growing up today may continue to feel stigmatised, and for many coming out is still a major hurdle. Candid, powerful and affecting, the first-person narratives of A Queer Existence form a valuable and unique insight into how gay men continue to have to step out of the mainstream and face their own challenges as they forge their queer identities.

            The story of contemporary Maori art from the 1950s to the present day, with over 200 artworks by more than 100 Maori artists. A powerful, dynamic and extensive new book about contemporary Maori art. Based on the ground-breaking 2020-21 exhibition staged by Auckland Art Gallery To...i o Tamaki, and edited by the show's curator Nigel Borell, Toi Tu Toi Ora presents more than 200 works by 100 Maori artists working from 1950 to the present day. From carving to painting, video art to jewellery, this is a powerful expression of the incredible creativity and diversity within Maori art, linked across time and place through the unique Maori creation story. Every work is illustrated in full colour and described in illuminating captions that are bilingual in English and te reo Maori. A beautiful foreword by Moana Jackson and the author's informative introduction share the history of contemporary Maori art within a kaupapa Maori worldview. These are supplemented by a comprehensive chronology of contemporary Maori art by the exhibition's assistant curator Taarati Taiaroa, and detailed biographies for every artist, written by the Gallery's expert curators and art historians, making this a major resource on toi Maori for anyone interested in the culture or history of Aoteroa New Zealand.
