This page will be devoted to featuring exhibitions which are outputs of the Fijian Art Research Project.

There are two types of exhibitions being realised within the work of the Project: exhibitions curated by Project members and those classified as 'exhibition pacakages' which are curated by regional UK museums and faciliated by the Fijian Art Research Project. Each exhibition package show will be marked with an asterisk (*) beside its title. For more information on exhibition packages, please see the bottom of this page.

Exhibition Packages are an initiative of the Fijian Art Research Project where the project team has been able to facilitate, most often, smaller regional museums in the UK to display items from their own Fijian collections. Such displays vary in size from a single case to an entire gallery, depending on the requirements of the participating museum, and are facilitated by the project team giving expertise, advice and enhanced interpretation of the objects to each curator who is mounting the exhibition. As an official output of the Fijian Art Research Project, these Exhibition Packages allow the project to provide the funds to assist each museum with the costs of producing text panels, labels and other display materials, in order for each participating museum's Fijian collections to be seen, sometimes for the first time.
