 Upcoming Event:

Guided tour of the exhibition Oceania at the Royal Academy of Arts, London 

10.30am-12.30pm Friday 16th November 2018

MEG members are invited to a special guided tour of the Oceania exhibition. The tour will be led by Professor Nicholas Thomas, Director of the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropologist, Cambridge, as well as an anthropologist and historian specialising in the Pacific Islands.

This exhibition marks 250 years since Cook’s first voyage to the Pacific and 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, it explores important themes of voyaging, place making and encounter. The exhibition draws from rich historic ethnographic collections dating from the 18th century to the present, and includes seminal works

Oceania has been organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London and Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac, Paris, with the participation of the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge.

There are some free places available for members who do not have ICOM or MA membership.

To book a place please contact Rachel Heminway Hurst, MEG Events Co-ordinator
