The Fine Arts Library has just received Titokowaru's dilemma (2011) a catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same name by Christchurch lithographer Marian Maguire. Titokowaru's dilemma is the third in a series exploring New Zealand history through the lens of Ancient Greek myths and legends.* Maguire's latest works pair the Māori prophet Riwha Titokowaru of Ngā Ruahine alongside Socrates.
The catalogue includes essays and poems by a number of respected authors including Jame Belich, Keri Hulme and our very own Distinguished Professor Dame Anne Salmond of the Department of Māori Studies and Professor Elizabeth Rankin of the Department of Art History.
Titokowaru's dilemma (2011) will be on the Fine Arts Library's New Books display until early next week.
* Maguire's previous lithographic series are entitled The Odyssey of Captain Cook" (2005) and The Labours of Herakles (2008).
