Bridget Reweti

Bridget Reweti (b. 1985, Aotearoa New Zealand) is an artist hailing from the Ngāti Ranginui and Ngāi Te Rangi groups in Tauranga Moana. Her artistic practice unfolds through lens-based works that engage with indigenous perspectives and posit landscape as a site of resistance against essentialist notions of ethnicities. She is a founding member of Kava Club, a collective of Māori and Pacific practitioners based in Wellington, and part of Mata Aho Collective, a group of four Māori women whose large scale fiber-based works have been featured in exhibitions such as Honolulu Biennial, Hawai’i, United States (2019), Signature Art Prize, Singapore Art Museum (2018), and documenta14, Kassel, Germany, (2017). She recently received solo shows at TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre, Auckland (2019) and New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Wellington (2018).
