Lisa Reihana: Emissaries is a beautifully designed and exquisitely illustrated examination of one of Aotearoa New Zealand's most ambitious artworks, In Persuit of Venus [Infected], for its presentation at the 57th Venice Biennale.
Comprising seven essays by leading scholars and curators, a lively conversational exchange, and insights into the career of Lisa Reihana (Ngāpuhi, Ngātihine, Ngāi Tu), this publication provides a captivating account of the sources that influenced the artist's expansive creative endeavour and how the Venice exhibition might be understood within the context of transnational indigenous art making.
