Noon Talk: Copyright and Mourning: Malagan of New Ireland

12:15 pm to 01:00 pm

The forms, patterns, and motifs used on these objects are “copyrighted” by specific families and individuals. Emma Kessler, curatorial assistant for the Arts of Africa, the South Pacific, and the Americas, will discuss these rites using three remarkable examples in the museum’s permanent collection.
