Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder Exhibition
Discovering Worlds is an ambitious project that explores RAMM’s collection of artefacts from the islands of the Pacific.
Many distinct cultures and identities have resided on these islands for hundreds if not thousands of years as a result of distant migrations from Asia.
Many of RAMM’s artefacts were acquired from early European voyages, the work of traders, missionaries and from colonial activity. On-going collections research adds to our knowledge of the artefacts and the dynamic, thriving cultures of the Oceanic peoples.
