Our exhibition Fa'aiho ta'u tufa'a
Friday 6 November 2020 to Sunday 25 April 2021 
From the 6th of November 2020 to the 25th of April 2021, the Museum of Tahiti and her Islands invites you to discover our brand new exhibition: Fa’aiho ta’u tufa’a. Fa’aiho, means “regain consciousness”, or “enlighten”. Tufa’a refers to the notion of heritage. This exhibition thus offers a reflection on the confrontation of both contemporary and antique works of art. You will have the opportunity to discover the Polynesian culture through the eyes of 22 contemporary artists as well as antique Polynesian pieces held at the Museum. Four themes were explored by the artists: Tiki-ti’i, ornaments, canoes and music. Unique pieces of artworks have been created especially for this event.
