Māia Abraham (Ngāi the Rangi, Tūhoe) is a curator and artist living currently in Ōtautahi Christchurch. He completed a BFA majoring in Sculpture from The University of Canterbury in 2017. Within his practice he uses art and curating as a way of exploring kaupapa Māori ways of thinking and working; asking how does manaakitanga (hospitalilty/respect) exist in the arts? Or perhaps why is whanaungatanga (relationships/connection) important to the artistic process?
Māia is one of 3 kaiwhakahaere (general manager) of Ōtautahi Kōrerotia, a collective producing events and exhibitions for and by local Christchurch artists.
