Where: Central City Library, Lorne Street window frontage
View Finder is Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision's moving image presentation that is installed in the Auckland Central Library window on Lorne Street. View Finder runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
The current View Finder presentation is Upper Hutt Posse, and is on display from 17 July - 31 July.
Māori activists and hip-hop pioneers Upper Hutt Posse released Aotearoa’s first ever hip-hop record “E Tu” in 1988. They shone light on many political issues with their influential and powerful positive message for Māori to stand up and be counted.
“E Tu, Stand Proud, Kia Kaha, Say it Loud!”
The echoes of this message are even more relevant today, so we pay homage Upper Hutt Posse with a collection of early videos and interviews from the archive. Mauri ora!
