"Islands in the Sun: Prints by indigenous artists of the Oceanic region"
2001-02-17 until 2001-05-27
National Gallery of Australia
Canberra, AC, AU Australia

The indigenous peoples of the Oceanic region share the same recent history. Colonised by Europeans, they have all had to struggle to maintain their individual cultural identities. In each of these societies the arts flourish and are characterised by a renewed interest in traditional images, designs and narratives.

Islands in the Sun presents contemporary woodcuts, screenprints and lithographs by the indigenous peoples of mainland Australia, Torres Strait, Bathurst Island, Niugini, Aotearoa and Samoa.
