Abstract: This essay explores presentation of identity and debates about curatorial practice
in a recent touring exhibition of Polynesian art. It emphasizes the fluid nature of
the exhibition as a public phenomenon that is aptly captured by the title, Bottled
Ocean. It notes and reflects on the influence of the author’s participation and
commentary on some aspects of the exhibition’s rhetoric.
