Whakaata looks to show a connection to a Maori print history.  It acknowledges this place, the proximity of Pompallier House with its historic printing press and its role in communication  during the time of early contact.  This exhibition presents numerous voices with some of the many Maori artists who have engaged in print and contributed to a Maori understanding of printmaking over the past 60 years.  Some of these include: Pauline Yearbury, Marilynn Webb, Cliff Whiting, Toi Te Rito Maihi and Clive Arlidge from this senior generation.
