Samoa Contemporary
Tauranga Art Gallery
Tauranga, New Zealand
December 20, 2008 – March 1, 2009
 
Samoa Contemporary showcases the strength of Samoan art within the New Zealand and international contemporary art scene. While Samoan artists have exhibited internationally and nationally under the umbrella of Pacific art, this exhibition is dedicated solely to Samoan artists living and working in New Zealand.

The exhibition involves 17 artists. Three of the artists are Samoan-born but have become New Zealand residents and now view Samoa as ‘somewhere else’. This distance allows them to look at their culture through fresh eyes. In their various ways, the artists synthesise their Samoan heritage and their culture within New Zealand, as well as their wider New Zealand experiences, with a blend of customary and contemporary uniqueness.

Artists include: Edith Amituanai, Fatu Feu’u, Graham Fletcher, Niki Hastings-McFall, Lonnie Hutchinson, John Ioane, Anita Jacobsen, Shigeyuki Kihara, Lily Aitua Laita, Nanette Lela’ulu, Andy Leleisi’uao, Nestor Opetaia, Genevieve Leitu Pini, Greg Semu, Siliga David Setoga, Lorene Taurerewa, Michel Tuffery.

This exhibition also offers an opportunity to see Rapa Nui wood sculpture from both public and private collections.

This exhibition is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and curated by Sharon Takeda, costume and textiles, and Mary Kahlenberg, guest curator.

Woman's Ceremonial Skirt (Tapis) (detail), South Sumatra, Lampung, mid-nineteenth century, silk and cotton plain weave with metallic thread supplementary weft-patterning, and silk and metallic thread embroidery with gold foil and mica, Mary Hunt Kahlenberg Collection.

Frank Hurley: Journey into Papua
Australian Museum, Level 2, Sydney
March 29, 2008 - February 22, 2009

Witness the culture clash between the Papuan people and the colonial settlers and experience the historical narrative of Papua in the 1920's in this unique new exhibition of 80 Frank Hurley images - many of which have never before appeared on public display.

While Hurley's superb coverage of the Mawson (1911-1913) and Shackleton (1914-1916) Antarctic expeditions, and the tragic horror of the First World War have guaranteed him a special place in the history of photography, his work in colonial Papua is less well known.

Now, Australian Museum visitors have the chance to see a fascinating selection of these historical images and gain a valuable insight into Hurley's life in Papua, his art and his ability to document distinctive turning points of the 20th century.

Gods, Ghosts & Men 
Pacific arts from the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra 
October 10, 2008 – January 11, 2009
 
Gods, Ghosts & Men draws exclusively on the National Gallery’s little known collection of traditional Pacific sculpture. The Pacific arts collection was initiated in 1968 with field collecting activities by Sir William Dargie in Papua New Guinea and in 1970 by Jean-Michel Charpentier in Vanuatu.

Many other works have been acquired through secondary sources during the 1970s and 1980s including the Max Ernst collection which features numerous spirit boards from the Papuan Gulf. Gods, Ghosts & Men exhibits some of the physical forms the ancestors and spirits could take. It is the first temporary exhibition in Australia for nearly twenty years on this scale and it is the first survey of the National Gallery’s Pacific arts collection. A collection known only by a handful of iconic works such as the 3500 year old echidna-like Ambum stone and the graceful double-figured house post from West Papua’s Lake Sentani. Through Gods, Ghosts & Men over 70 works from the Pacific never seen before by the Australian public can, after many years, now take their place in the sun. Proudly supported by the National Gallery of Australia Council Exhibitions Fund.

Event at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology
Cambridge, England
December 4, 2008

You will all be aware of the Maori carver Tene Waitere through Roger Neich's magnificent Carved Histories. One of Tene's less well known works is a pouhaki, or fully carved flagpole, made in 1920 as a gift for the then Prince of Wales, Edward, who was touring the colonies to thank them for supporting England during World War I. On his return, this pouhaki was presented by the Prince to the Navy, and erected at Whale Island, a base in Portsmouth Harbor where it remained until last year.

Following discussions involving Tene's great-great-great grandson James Schuster, the Navy and other bodies, the flagpole was moved to Cambridge for conservation work, and will be on permanent display there. A ceremony of dedication took place on the evening of December 4, attended by James and Cathy Schuster from Rotorua, Ngati Ranana, and others.

McCarthy Art Gallery | Albert Wendt
December 1 - 19, 2008

Albert Wendt is acknowledged internationally as one of New Zealand’s and the Pacific’s major novelists, poets and intellectuals. His work has been translated into  any languages and is taught throughout the world. He has won many accolades and prizes and been awarded numerous honours.

What is not well known is that he is also a painter. He studied art at Ardmore Teachers College, with artists such as Selwyn Muru and Sandy Adsett, but has spent most of his life writing. He returned to painting in 2000 and has been painting with a huge passion since then. For the past four years he lived in Hawai’i and in September 2007, had his first exhibition of paintings at the Louis Pohl Gallery in Honolulu. It was very successful. He returned to his home in Ponsonby in July 2008, and has continued painting with the same intensity and passion. This is his first exhibition in New Zealand, proudly host by McCarthy Art Gallery.

Assume Nothing
The New Dowse, Lower Hutt, New Zealand
April 12 - August 30, 2008

What does it mean to identify yourself as ‘transgender or gender fluid’, in a world determined to define you as either male or female? In this challenging yet sensitive exhibition entitled Assume Nothing, The New Dowse invites you to leave your preconceptions at the door and take a walk in the shoes of those who identify themselves as ‘alternatively gendered.’ This series of stunning portrait photographs by Rebecca Swan, and award-winning documentary footage by Kirsty McDonald, reveals both the extraordinary, and often very ordinary worlds of New Zealand’s transgender community. These portraits are of transgender peoples from all walks of life, and include well-known personalities such as performer Carmen Rupe, politician Georgina Beyers, Wellington activist and spokesperson Mani Bruce Mitchel, and artist Shigeyuki Kihara. Assume Nothing is an exploration and true celebration of the complex world of gender diversity.

10th Festival of Pacific Arts
American Samoa
July 20 - August 2, 2008

The idea of a Festival of Pacific Arts was conceived by the Conference of the South Pacific Comission (now the Pacific Community) in an attempt to combat the erosion of traditional customary practices. It grew out of the desire expressed by Pacific Island leaders for the people of the region to share their cultures and establish deeper understanding and friendship between countries. Since 1972, Pacific peoples have come together every four years to share and exchange their culture at the Festival of Pacific Arts. They come from more than 27 countries and the number of participatns has increased to more than 2000. The Festival is recognized as a major international cultural event and is the largest gathering in which Pacific people unite to gain respect for and appreciation of one another within the context of the changing Pacific.

Flat White, Black Pearl
Te Karanga Gallery
March 1 - March 22, 2008
Flat White, Black Pearl is being shown in Auckland's Te Karanga Gallery as part of the month-long Celebrate Pasifika festival. Atypical of the usual expectation of Pacific culture in the visual arts, it will only feature works that are in black and white. With almost 50 artists participating in the show, there are bound to be a few surprises about how the artists have chosen to express their ‘colour’ and cultural identity when confined to neutral tones. Jim Vivieaere has curated the exhibition along with Leeane Clayton, herself an emerging artist and first time curator. While the curators concentrate on creating the physical and intellectual experience of the exhibition, the artists determine their own views on issues of race and identity as Pacific artists. The exhibition invites people to take another look at the contrast of white and black, the personal expression of identity and wider issues of race and ethnicity.

World of Shadows – Art of the South Seas: Death Cult and Ancestral Portraits from New Ireland
Museen Dahlem, Ethnologisches Museum
Welt der Schatten - Kunst der Südsee
Totenkult und Ahnenbilder aus Neuirland
August 10 - November 11, 2007
The Ethnological Museum, together with the Saint Louis Art Museum in the United States and the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris, is the first to present this comprehensive show of art from New Ireland, compiled from collections in the United States, Europe and Australia.

The exhibition presents over 150 sculptures and paintings of outstanding artistic quality. Among them are the famous Uli figures with their sturdy breasts and large penises. The Uli figure has become a favoured object among collectors of Oceanic art, and André Breton sang its praises in a Surrealist poem.

The publication of Emil Stephan’s decisive work on the art of the South Seas ("Südseekunst") in Berlin a hundred years ago coincided with Pablo Picasso’s creation of his famous painting of "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon" which is often regarded as the starting point of European modern artists’ engagement with extra-European art.

Commissioned by the Berlin Museums for Ethnology, Stephan returned to New Ireland in order to carry out new research on the carvings which are currently regarded as the most important artistic creations of the South Seas. As objects that received early European attention, they soon acquired a high status among collectors and can now be found in museums worldwide.
Presented by: Ethnological Museum.

Murawari Works by Roy Barker Jr.
Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney
Exhibition Dates: 24 July - 28 October 2007

The diverse landscape of far north-west NSW encompasses the Barwon and Darling River Systems, artesian water wells, forest, scrub and plains. Negotiating the thousands of botanical species of this area and recognising not just what tree to cut but when and where to cut it is one of the many skills Barker has learnt from his family. Now an established artist and artefact maker, Barker engages with the need to preserve the integrity and continuity of Aboriginal knowledge and techniques while embracing modern technologies and methods in his carving style.

Barker's works are exhibited as a commentary on the Western knowledge of system of scientific order devised by Carl Linnaeus.
