Vaccine passes are no longer required and businesses under vaccine mandates to use vaccine passes will no longer be mandated. There is no limit for indoor or outdoor gatherings.
This summer, local artists and artisans will undertake short-term stays at Heather Straka's Isolation Hotel inside Canterbury Museum.
Each artist will respond to a specially selected taonga (treasure) from the museum collection, reflecting on historical techniques or the influence of a particular period on their work. Our contemporary creatives will also deliver an artist talk and Q&A.
In this free public talk, local artist Steven Junil Park will join Julia Bradshaw, Senior Curator Human History at the museum, for a lunchtime talk about an object he has chosen from the museum's collection: a brass offering set or Jae-gi (제기) that was used in Korea to make offerings to deceased ancestors in a ceremony known as Jesa (제사).\
They will discuss the Jae-gi, its provenance and how Steven's Korean heritage has influenced his work.
