The Art of Fiji

6 January – 1 May 2015
Hunterian Museum
Admission free

Glasgow historically served as Scotland’s gateway to the distant colonies of the British Empire. The Hunterian holds approximately one hundred artefacts from Fiji, many donated by Glaswegian travellers over the last two centuries. This focus display showcases key objects from our collections and tells the stories of the artefacts and their donors, all of which have a fascinating connection to Glasgow.

The Hunterian is one of the Project Associate Museums who participated in the 3 year Arts and Humanities Research Council project jointly hosted by the Sainsbury Research Unit at the University of East Anglia and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge.
