EVENT - “Living Objects” Exhibition


DATE: 18 – 25th July

This exhibition focused on heritage arts and included photographs of culturally significant objects and where possible actual artifacts or samples of works. The idea was to engage in a scholarly and creative conversation about natural and cultural heritage, through a historical and indigenous knowledge lens. The arts as a critical site of knowing was explored as well as the impact of Christianity, Colonisation, modernity and globalisation on the cultural memory and practice of the various art forms and/or use of the items on display. The event coincided with the Laucala Campus “Moment to Shine”
