Marama Dina

‘Marama Dina’ unites Australian and Aotearoa New Zealand female artists of iTaukei (Indigenous Fijian) heritage in a showcase of newly commissioned works. The artists reflect on iTaukei identity and how their bloodlines and contemporary lives are symbiotic; embodying the past, present and future, and connect with empowering cultural knowledge previously eroded by colonisation and migration. A highlight of the show is a vale ni soqo (village meeting house), an installation created as a gathering place for Pasifika communities to share knowledge.
