An ideal opportunity to see the ‘Oceania’ exhibition and exchange and share ideas with other teachers.

Marking 250 years since Cook’s first voyage to the Pacific, we celebrate the dazzling and diverse art of the region of Oceania, from the historic to the contemporary.

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 god-images, 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.

Enjoy an in-conversation event with RA Senior Curator Adrian Locke and artist Fiona Pardington, whose photographs in the exhibition bring to a contemporary audience an awareness of traditional and forgotten objects. Then explore the exhibition, network with other teachers and pick up a free poster, available to collect on the day.

Supported by Arts Council of New Zealand Toi Aotearoa.
