This exhibition looks between the frames of close to 100 photographs to uncover the rich and varied experiences of Chinese people in New Zealand.
Follow the story from Appo Hocton who arrived in 1842 to new migrants in the 2000s, from pioneering goldminers and merchants to architects and entrepreneurs, from early settlers to established communities.
Through films and oral histories hear New Zealanders speak about what being Chinese means to them today.
The exhibition also features a new series of comic-book artworks from graphic artist Ant Sang and writer Helene Wong.
The series follows two Chinese Aucklanders as they take a tour of contemporary Auckland and meet a range of fascinating figures along the way.
