Our Pull Focus video series takes its lead from our print magazine feature of the same name. Here, we focus in on what makes a particular artwork WORK as art. We have done a special series as part of the Auckland Art Fair. Watch Emil McAvoy in conversation with Raukura Turei about the artist’s work He Tukuna III, 2020.
