About the Exhibition
British, Māori and ancient Greek cultures collide in the works of New Zealand artist Marian Maguire. Who Are You?: Athens, Aotearoa & the Art of Marian Maguire brings a selection of these works to Melbourne's Hellenic Museum.
This triad of cultures opens a visual conversation that touches on colonialism, memory, cultural interaction, history and myth, and invites viewers to consider how these factors contribute to the construction of identity on a personal, cultural and national level.
