Oceania celebrates the dazzling and diverse visual arts of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia, encompassing the vast Pacific region from New Guinea to Easter Island, Hawaii to Aotearoa (New Zealand). Spanning a 500-year history up to the present day, the exhibition showcases the art and craft of the indigenous populations, each with their own history of inter-island trade, ocean navigation, customs and rituals.
These artistic traditions are the inspiration for a specially sourced range of products, books and one-off art works that celebrate the exhibition, with designs that reflect the richness of imagery and symbolism from across cultures and territories. There is a deep connection with nature and the flora and fauna of the region: shells, ferns, fuchsia, palms and exotic birds on jewellery and homewares. Traditional Maori forms and techniques such as the koru (stylised fern frond) and motifs from carving and bark cloths feature on stationery and textiles. Many products have been sourced directly from manufacturers and makers in Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the Pacific Islands.
For customers with a taste for the rare and special, the RA team has sourced a range of original contemporary art works and unique pieces, direct from artists and makers in Aotearoa and the Pacific Islands. The result is an extraordinary and unique collection of limited-edition art works and one-off pieces of glass, ceramics, weaving, fabric, cloth painting, carving, sculpture and jewellery. The exhibition provides an opportunity to acquire very special pieces that have not been available in the UK before, and which showcase techniques and materials largely unknown in Europe.
From notebooks and postcards to unique contemporary jewellery or the finest traditional weaving, the choice and range are as diverse as the region itself.
