Brett Graham

Brett Graham (Ngāti Korokī Kahukura / Pakeha) gained a BFA from Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland in 1988 before travelling to the University of Hawai’i in 1989 to complete his MFA. He gained a Doc.FA from Elam in 2004.

Graham creates large-scale artworks and installations that engage with indigenous histories, politics and philosophies. He has exhibited extensively, both locally and internationally, and is recognised as a leading figure in the formation of the international indigenous artists network.

Graham’s artwork is accessible at an aesthetic, personal and historical level, enabling both the object and viewer to occupy a common ground.

Graham has undertaken a range of Residencies throughout Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa (the Pacific), North America, Asia and Europe and completed public art commissions for sites including Auckland War Memorial Museum, Auckland University of Technology, The Centre Culturel Jean-Marie Tjiabou, New Caledonia, The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and Wellington’s Parliament grounds.
