On September 29, 2018 the largest exhibition of arts and culture of Oceania opened at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, featuring IAS faculty member Masahiro Sugano’s short film, “Tell Them.” Originally filmed live at the Southbank Centre as part of the Cultural Olympiad London 2012 showcase, the spoken word film features poet and climate justice activist Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner from the Marshall Islands.

The Oceania exhibition brings together around 200 exceptional works from public collections worldwide, and spans over 500 years. The exhibition draws from rich historic ethnographic collections dating from the 18th century to the present, and includes seminal works produced by contemporary artists exploring history, identity and climate change. Oceania is on view in London until December 10, 2018 after which it tours to the Musee du Quai Branly, in Pairs from February until July 2019.
