Michael Parekowhai
The Promised Land


Published on the occasion of ‘Michael Parekowhai: The Promised Land’, at Queensland’s GOMA (28 March to 21 June 2015).

Richly illustrated, The Promised Land showcases Michael Parekowhai’s sculpture and photography in philosophical, political and art historical terms. Parekowhai’s primarily sculptural works often play with scale and space, using humour to comment on the intersections between national narratives, colonial histories and popular culture. The text includes new and unique scholarship on the artist, with texts by exhibition curator and Deputy Director, Collection and Exhibitions, Maud Page, and former Warhol Museum director Thomas Sokolowski.
