Change is a very important component in Polynesian culture. This quality has only been acknowledged recently with greater scholarly attention being paid to the exciting diversity and rich permutations of cultural expression which have found expression around the Pacific rim most spectacularly since the arrival of palagi/pakeha. This course is one of a growing number being run within the context of tertiary institutions around Aotearoa addressing the work of First Nation artists. This new attention acknowledges the importance and uniqueness of our South Pacific cultural context and heritage. Because of the pioneering nature of this shift in focus the contributions of both student and lecturer are vital to it's ongoing development. With your kete and our kete of knowledge and experience, we will build something together.


The paper 'Maori and Polynesian Arts' was first taught in 1993 in the Art History Department. Introducing students to a range of current activity in Maori and Pacific Island visual arts, this paper encourages students to make connections between taonga and forms being produced today. It looks at major developments in the work of these artists since the 1950's and explores a range of ideological positions for reading current Maori and Pacific art.

The importance of cultural change as a survival mechanism, the traditional base leading artists have started, departed from or returned to; the cross cultural assimilation and redefinition involved in their work, First Nation art context and the implications of outside cultural definition and analysis. Historical models and contemporary theoretical positions will be referred to providing a context for the innovative work of contemporary artists operating within this paradigm. Social factors will also be examined to help account for new directions being taken.
