Art for all times

Contemporary Pacific art exhibition Le Folauga is showing at Taiwan’s Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts until April 5. Le Folauga features a representative sample of the best artwork being created in New Zealand by 14 Pacific artists. The participating artists work in a wide variety of media and are among the leading contemporary visual artists in New Zealand. They include: Edith Amituanai, John Ioane, Shigeyuki Kihara, Michel Tuffery and Jim Vivieaere. The curatorial text describes the exhibition: “Le Folauga represents the past, the present and the future. It means the voyage and the changes that occur along the way. It shows the movement towards the future and traveling in the direction of the current. Le Folauga has the sense of a flotilla moving together and forward.”
