‘Koloa: Women, Art, and Technology’ extended through 26 April, 2020

We’re delighted to announce that the exhibition Koloa: Women, Art, and Technology has now been extended through 26 April, 2020. Visit us if you haven’t already from 4 March, Wednesdays to Sundays, 12-7 pm.

The exhibition is an unprecedented international presentation based on the life-long research of Tunakaimanu Fielakepa, the Dowager Lady Fielakepa, the Kingdom of Tonga’s foremost knowledge-holder of ‘koloa’ or customary women’s arts in Tonga. The exhibition first launched at the Langafonua ‘a Fafine Tonga, a historic centre for women’s customary arts in Nuku’alofa, Tonga. For its international presentation at Para Site in Hong Kong, the exhibition expands its scope with a parallel, curated presentation of three women artists, Tanya Edwards, Nikau Hindin, and Vaimaila Urale, that further reflects upon the sophisticated status of aesthetic lineages in the Pacific as inseparable manifestations of art and technology.

Koloa: Women, Art, and Technology is curated by the Dowager Lady Fielakepa, and co-curated by Cosmin Costinas and Vivian Ziherl.
