Tautai heads offshore

The Auckland-based Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust is hosting its first international exhibition, at The Art Studio in Rarotonga. Titled Longitude, the show features works by 21 artists with Pacific heritage, including photographer Greg Semu, printmaker Sheyne Tuffery, performance artist Rosanna Raymond and street artist Suia Westbrook. “We’re excited about hosting the exhibition and are pleased to be able to showcase work from both up and coming young Pacific artists, together with those who already have established reputations,” said Art Studio co-owner, Ian George. Longitude is curated by Giles Peterson, who recently presented a paper on young Pacific artists at the Museum Quai Branly in Paris.
