Pacific Island Artists Navigating the Global Art World brings together artists, academics, museum curators and gallery owners to discuss the creation and promotion of contemporary Pacific arts in the global art world. Addressing art production from across the Pacific region (Australia, Papua, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Rotuma, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand, Guam, Hawaii, and the Northwest Coast of Canada) this volume examines how these arts are exhibited and marketed on a world stage. It provides the opportunity for a global dialogue concerning contemporary indigenous arts while it explores the diversity and complexities of contemporary Pacific art. In so doing, these contributors confront a variety of issues associated with the production, marketing and acceptance of indigenous arts in a global art world.
