Voyage Exhibition of Oceanic Art

The Michael Reid Art Bar is thrilled to present ‘Voyage’ an exhibition investigating and reimagining the tradition of Oceanic art.

Introducing Greg Semu, the renowned New Zealand born artist of Samoan descent, to the Michael Reid audience, 8 of his photographic works will hang alongside oceanic artworks, such as large carvings, dance helmets and beautiful stone prehistoric axe-heads.

Oceanic art is seductive; it has that connection with the spirits and ritual that the modern world has lost; yet it is the root of all our contemporary art.

Oceanic, more so than the other tribal arts, is full of colour and eccentricity; there are over 800 language groups just in Papua New Guinea, signifying 800 different cultures that each interpret and create artworks in such diverse ways.
