Time Out says

This multi-venue exhibition celebrates artists from across the Pacific

In Pijin, the language spoken on the Solomon Islands, “wansolwara” translates loosely to “one ocean, one people”, explaining what draws the region together. So it’s an appropriate title for this ambitious exhibition project about the Pacific, which takes place at both UNSW Galleries and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.

Across video, installation, performance, and a range of other projects, a group of more than 20 artists are exploring the rich visual culture of the region. The artists involved include Sebastián Calfuqueo Aliste, Mitiana Arbon, asinnajaq, Mariquita ‘Micki’ Davis, Sarah Biscarra Dilley, Winnie Dunn, Léuli Eshraghi, Terry Faleono, Ruha Fifita, Troppo Galaktika, Amrita Hepi, Rebecca Ann Hobbs, Shivanjani Lal, Enoch Mailangi, Caroline Monnet, Faye Mullen, Paula Schaafhausen, Talia Smith, Shannon Te Ao, Angela Tiatia, Vaimaila Urale and Gutiŋarra Yunupiŋu.
