I have 31 years professional experience as a leading NZ curator and art historian. My specialist areas are Māori, Pacific, NZ and international indigenous art. I am available to work with corporate or visitor clients who want to gain a deeper understanding of these artforms in relation to business, individual interest, collection or philanthropy. I work with public and private collections and heritage landscape in the Auckland, Kaipara and Northland regions. I am also available for tailored visits to particular sites in other rohe throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
I have lectured at universities and curated museum exhibitions in New Zealand and overseas. This work has led to collective projects, exhibitions and presentations within the Australasian Gallery circuit, New York University, Field Museum, Chicago and the International Social Sciences Council, UNESCO in Paris. I am just as happy talking one on one with clients as I am in presenting more formally to larger audiences
Some more specific information here about the publication MAORI ART: History, Architecture, Landscape and Theory, 2015/2018.
‘The book is expansive in its presentation and format as well as highly innovative in its conceptual and theoretical range. Rangihīroa Panoho alludes to a broad range of art practices to elicit an exciting and novel history of Māori art, one which spans customary and contemporary artworks alongside photography and architecture... This is an exciting and innovative addition to the discipline of Māori and Pacific art history volumes. The expansive vision of the author deserves to be acknowledged and rewarded.'
