Documents an exhibition by 15 New Zealand artists in the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge, UK from 2006-2008. The artists flung open the stores of the museum and installed their works in cases next to taonga collected on the voyages of Cook and Vancouver. The visiting artists included Ani O'Neill, Maureen Lander, Shigeyuki Kihara, Tracey Tawhiao, Reuben Paterson, Rachel Rakena, Lisa Reihana, Lisa Taouma, and Michel Tuffery who brought vitality to the collections by offering workshops, seminars, public activities and a festival of performing arts. This book describes the making of Pasfika Styles from the perspectives of the artists and the museum professionals and scholars involved, placing it in the midst of current debates about museums, cultural property and art.
