Marking 250 years since Cook’s first voyage to the Pacific, the RA celebrates the dazzling and diverse art of the region of Oceania, from the historic to the contemporary.
Oceania will bring together around 200 exceptional works from public and private collections worldwide and will span over 500 years. From shell, greenstone and ceramic ornaments, to huge canoes and stunning god images, the exhibitions explores important themes of voyaging, placemaking and encounter. The exhibition draws from rich historic ethnographic collections dating from the 18th century to the present and includes seminal works produced by contemporary artists exploring history, identity and climate change.
