SIS: Pacific Art (1980-2023)

September 8, 2024

Gallery of Modern Art

Sis, susa, tuofefine, tuahine, tuafafine, sister eo an, tita, kauaemua, sista – there are many different words for ‘sister’ in the Pacific region. The exhibition ‘sis’ investigates three decades of art-making from a sisterhood of artists from across Oceania. Important figures, often largely unknown outside their homelands are highlighted, alongside established artists, to create an expanded vision of the art of Oceania since the early 1990s. The exhibition includes textiles, ceramics, photography, moving image, sculpture, installation and performance.
