Details

The most comprehensive exhibition about Fiji and Fijian art ever assembled, Fiji: Art and Life in the Pacific will highlight exceptional collections from the UK and elsewhere, including the Fiji Museum.

The exhibition will bring together beautiful historic objects such as wood sculpture, bowls, canoes, weapons, large painted barkcloths and finely crafted objects made of shell and whale ivory, as well as examples of contemporary art.

Continuity of artistic practice in Fiji will be explored. Among the highlights will be a specially commissioned 26-ft sailing canoe and barkcloth wedding dresses.

Over 250 objects, paintings, drawings and historic photographs will celebrate Fijian creativity and the important place of art in Fijian culture.
