International human rights-focused photographic exhibition.

The Unrecognised exhibition series will launch in Wellington on August 19th at Garrett Street exhibition space. The event, which seeks to draw attention to the upcoming UN decision on the recognition of Palestinian Statehood, will take place in 8 cities in 3 countries; New Zealand, Israel and South Africa.

Unrecognised commemorates the 30th anniversary of the widespread anti-apartheid movement against the 1981 Springbok Tour of New Zealand.

The Unrecognised exhibitions will showcase striking images from South Africa under Apartheid, from the 1981 anti-Apartheid movement in New Zealand, and from occupied Palestine today.

Unrecognised will feature a collection of works from acclaimed Israeli/Palestinian photography collective ActiveStills, as well as works from prominent South African photojournalist and film-maker Mark Fredericks, and New Zealand artists including Auckland’s “living legend” Gil Hanly, controversial “Dole Artist” Tao Wells, musician Imon Starr, and political activist Tame Iti. More than 40 local photographers have contributed to the exhibition, emphasising the strong and diverse community support for Palestinian statehood in New Zealand.
