Originally published in 2002, Pacific Art Niu Sila was the first full-length book to celebrate the vital influence of Pacific peoples in the arts and culture of New Zealand. From the 1950s to the present day, the book covers a range of long-established and contemporary artforms including t vaevae, tatau, tapa, film, photography, painting, jewellery, fashion, music and dance. Now more than ever, this book is essential reading for teachers, students and all those interested in the contemporary arts of both New Zealand and the Pacific.
