Noon Talk: Cultural Continuity through Dance

IU Art Museum, 1133 E. 7th Street

Wednesday, February 26, 12:15–1:00 p.m.
The Raymond and Laura Wielgus Gallery of the Art of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, third floor

The contemporary Polynesian dance scene has been thriving around the world, with events dedicated to its perpetuation and celebration in places as disparate as Japan, Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Using objects located in the Wielgus Gallery of the Art of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, Eric Morales (doctoral candidate in the Department of Folklore) will explore the way in which the revival of Polynesian dance has prompted a renewed interest in material culture, providing motivation for skilled Polynesians to reconnect with ancient craft processes and a platform by which to showcase their art.

Cost: Admission is always free.
