DAY 4 - MANERE ARTS CENTRE NGA TOHU O UENUKU (MAC)

Funded and supported by Mangere-Otahuhu LOCAL BOARD

ENDURING PRACTICES

Too often the makers themselves are absent from the discourse of Pacific art and visual culture. As this symposium is situated in the Pacific we seek to include the makers where possible, so that all are privileged with hearing their voices, knowledge and perspectives as they offer understandings of Pacific art.

LOOKING BACK, MOVING FORWARD

How do we make sense of the future if we don't understand the past? Social and cultural values often compete with economic and political imperatives shaping and re-shaping endeavours through time. The opportunity to reflect on the legacies of formative movements and ideas that have shaped the arts and cultural landscape of the Pacific over the past fifty years is offered here. Sessions under this subtheme will focus on performance arts.

CULTURAL SPACES, SIGHTS AND SITES

For peoples and cultures of the great Moana art is a lived experience. Today there are many cultural spaces where Pacific Arts are showcased. These range from Western spaces such as galleries and museums that provide innovative forums, to wider cultural spaces such as Polyfest and Churches where 'unknown' master artists regularly exhibit their creativity and ingenuity. The fast changing pace of technology has also enabled multiple means for documenting and recording as well as providing virtual spaces for instant and global sharing of art.
