pasifika styles

Courtesy of Sheyne Tuffery, whose art I’ve recently discovered (and love), heads-up that the University of Cambridge Museum of Anthropology & Archaeology is holding an exhibition called Pasifika Styles from May, with artists, craftspeople, performing artists, and displays of the Museums collections.

I may have to revise my assertion that Oceanic cultural events are few and far between in these isles.

Also, the House of Taonga (taonga means treasures/property, but also accessory or equipment), a collective of Maori artists/performing artists. Fabulous webdesign–for starters–and a talented group of people with an admirable ethic.

  2. I haven’t actually managed to get up to Cambridge yet to see it! Hope to in the next few weeks 🙂

  3. Hi , What do you think? I’m looking to come over late this month or early next to converse with the collection …have you heard about parts of the St Petersberg Pacific collection going to the Captain Cook Birthplace museum?
    Cheers
