Patrons are invited to join us for a family friendly morning in ‘Oceania’, with the chance to privately view the exhibition on one of our short educational tours, take part in a craft workshop in our new Clore Learning Centre and enjoy a delicious breakfast.

Oceania will bring together around 200 exceptional works from public and private collections worldwide, and will span over 500 years. From shell, greenstone and ceramic ornaments, to huge canoes and dazzling house facades, we explore important themes of voyaging, place making and encounter.

The exhibition draws from rich historic ethnographic collections dating from the 18th century to the present, and includes seminal works produced by contemporary artists exploring history, identity and climate change.
