Welcome to the Pacific Arts Association

The Pacific Arts Association (PAA), founded in 1974 and established as an association in 1978, is an international organization devoted to the study of all the arts of Oceania. PAA provides a forum for dialogue and awareness about Pacific art and culture. By connecting individuals and institutions around the world, PAA encourages greater cooperation among those who are involved with the creation, study, and exhibition of Pacific art. The peer-reviewed Pacific Arts journal features current research and reviews. The PAA newsletter provides timely information about important events to members. PAA’s triennial International Symposium takes place in alternating venues across the globe and includes special tours, performances, exhibitions, and presentations of academic and artistic research on the arts of Oceania. Members have the opportunity to meet and participate in a PAA-sponsored session at the College Art Association annual meeting. PAA-Europe holds a meeting in Europe annually.
