Art in Oceania is the product of a remarkable collaboration among a team of anthropologists, art historians and curators of both European and Pacific Islands descent. The product of years of engagement with communities across the Pacific, and research in the collections of dozens of museums, this book is a revelation of Oceanic art, past and present, reimagined for the twenty-first century.
The book reveals the art of Oceania as profoundly dynamic, at once grounded in tradition and full of innovation. It ranges from the earliest archaeological evidence through the great historic works collected by such voyagers as Captain Cook to the arts of the last fifty years.
It does justice to the variety of Pacific cultures, from those of the Highlands of New Guinea to the furthest reaches of Polynesian settlement in New Zealand and Easter Island. It ranges across genres, from ancient rock art through ritual architecture to contemporary painting and installation art, as no previous survey has done. Its hallmark is the argument that art in Oceania is a product of history – from the changing relations among Pacific peoples to their resilience and creativity in the face of colonial intrusions and the challenges of globalization.
Art in Oceania reinterprets icons of Oceanic art in the context of the colonial encounters that shaped them, and brings the story of Oceania’s modernisms into view as part of contemporary history.
