Island Beats

6 March - 14 June 2004
Collection display
Gallery 3

'Island Beats' celebrates the rhythm of life in the Pacific islands as expressed through highly colourful and intricately designed woven material. The exhibition features recent weaving using natural and synthetic fibres shown at the 2003 Pasifika Arts Festival in Aotearoa New Zealand, together with other fibre art from the Gallery's Collection. The technical and visual diversity of these art works traces the pattern of people migrating throughout the Pacific islands and tells the story of a dynamic exchange of cultures.
