Ongekura – How do institutions like the British Museum protect and care for taonga that don’t inherently belong there?
We welcome you to join Dr Julie Adams who will share her experience and insights in this free public lecture on the protection and care of taonga. She is Curator Oceania at the British Museum and has worked on major research and exhibition projects at National Museums Scotland and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge.
Dr Julie Adams studied at the Sainsbury Research Unit for the Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. Her doctorate ‘Te Kahu Ukauka: The Enduring Maori Cloak’ (2007), examined the significance of Maori cloaks in contemporary Maori art.
