Abstract: This essay explores presentations of identity in two recent exhibitions of Polynesian
art. The first and more widely celebrated of these, Te Maori, emphasized
traditional artworks; the second, consisting of work by migrant Polynesians, presented
contemporary culture and identity in more mobile and fluid terms. The
idea that personal identity is formed by cultural background and tradition nevertheless
remains dominant in individual artists’ discussions of their concerns and
motivations.
