I want to go to my bedroom but I can’t be bothered charts the 30-year evolution of world-renowned New Zealand jeweller Lisa Walker. From the 1980s to now, Walker has challenged convention – “Just because it’s jewellery doesn’t mean we have to clam up and be well-behaved.”

In March 2018, Te Papa opens a spacious new art gallery, Toi Art. Spanning two floors and 3980 square metres, Toi Art features new immersive and large-scale art, a suite of stunning new exhibitions – including Pacific Sisters: Fashion Activists, Kaleidoscope: Abstract Aotearoa and Lisa Walker: I want to go to my bedroom but I can't be bothered  – and iconic works from the national art collection.
