Nigel Borell, a curator who brought more than 300 pieces of Māori art to Auckland Art Gallery, an institution he remained highly critical of, has been recognised for his landmark work, Stuff reports. Borell, of the iwi Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui, and Te Whakatōhea, received the Arts Foundation’s inaugural He Momo – A Moment In Time Award on Friday night. The foundation said this would be an award given only occasionally, when someone was able to change the landscape of New Zealand art.
