Video: Oceania opening procession and performances

Published 29 September 2018

Our major exhibition Oceania celebrates the dazzling and diverse art of this vast region. To mark the opening of the exhibition, a special ceremonial welcome took place at the RA.

    Ahead of the exhibition opening, representatives from across Oceania, artists and supporters joined a procession through London to the RA.

    They were met by a ceremonial welcome from Ngāti Rānana, the London Māori Club, who represented the RA as the tangata whenua (hosts). While a private blessing took place in the exhibition galleries, there were performances outside from different countries of Oceania.

    Oceania is in the Main Galleries until 10 December 2018.
