Talking Tapa: Pasifika Bark Cloth in Queensland

Special Exhibitions Gallery
12 February - 11 April 2010

This exhibition offers an opportunity to view traditional and contemporary Pasifika design and to learn more about Australia's Pacific neighbours and migrant communities. Talking Tapa comes to MGA from Brisbane Multicultural Arts Centre and details the rich cultural heritage of tapa cloth. As well as being astonishingly beautiful, tapa holds great social, symbolic and practical value for many island nations of the South-West pacific.
