Opening 4 December 2021, Tūhuratia Exploded showcases the innovative photographic artwork of Auckland artist Richard Parry with a series of 16 brightly coloured ’exploded view’ images of much-loved handheld games and consoles from the early 1980s until now.  

Kei ngā kanohi haere o ngā maunga whakahī, o ngā wai whakaora. Nei rā te karanga a Tūhuratia ki a koutou kia tirotiro ā-Māui ki ngā mahi toi ataata nā te ringatoi o Tāmakimakaurau, nā Richard Parry.

This colourful and fun exhibition explores new and creative ways to engage with technology through the concepts of making and dismantling, moving around and pulling apart, with visitors able to see and explore the inner workings of both old and new tech objects.  

He kitenga hou tēnei whakaari toi ataata e tūhura ai i ngā ara auaha hei pāhekoheko ki ngā tūmomo hangarau mā ngā ariā o te waihanga me te kōpana, o te tirotiro haere me te whakamatariki hoki. He kitenga hou mā te hunga kia kite i ngā nekehanga a roto o ngā hangarau tawhito, o ngā hangarau hou...nau mai, haere mai.

With interactive and hands-on activities, and digital experiences, there is something for the whole whānau to enjoy.
