Objects from the University of Aberdeen Museums collections go on display in the largest exhibition about Fiji ever assembled.
At the University of Aberdeen Museums we look after vast and impressive collections from the Pacific, some of which are now going to be on display in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.
The exhibition, ‘Fiji: Art & Life in the Pacific’ will be the largest and most comprehensive exhibition about Fiji ever assembled and explores the art and cultural history of Fiji since the late 18th Century.
Alongside the Fiji Museum, The British Museum, the Pitt Rivers Museum and many more, the University Museums will be lending some of our most spectacular Fijian items to the exhibition including jewellery, weapons, household objects and works of art.
Last week our team in the collections centre were working hard preparing the objects for the loan; packing the objects safely for transportation to Norwich.
We’re excited for these objects to go on display and join the other impressive collections from around the world that will be on display in this important exhibition.
The exhibition will be open from 15 October 2016 – 12 February 2017
