McCahons Auckland

Signs and symbols to live by? — Colin McCahon, Gate III and contemporary practice

'McCahon's Auckland' is a unique opportunity to experience Auckland through the lens of one of our most influential artists. 

Our aim is for 'McCahon's Auckland' to become a daily service for locals and visitors to experience some of the social history of Tāmaki Makaurau, the unique bush and beach, and the work of Colin McCahon.
