About

The Gallery in LOST EDEN is a multi-year storytelling project dedicated to decolonizing the arts through truth and reconciliation.  The multidisciplinary project seeks to fabricate a new model of repatriation and reconciliation of Oceania art, cultural, and ancestral items to empower Indigenous owned institutions and stewardship.

What's on at the gallery

SPRING 2021
Copy Culture, Containers, & Consumption_

Drawn mainly from LOST EDEN's permanent collection, this exhibit presents artworks that engage with the pioneering works of Tali Alisa Hafoka, a second generation Oceania fine arts painter. Her work is uniquely positioned between her La'ie, Glendale, and Samoan experiences of home and family life.  Culture, Containers, and Consumption celebrates Hafoka's artistic and visual storytelling that has birthed a distinct style of still life portrayed in vibrant and emotive colors. Through her paintings and sculptures, Hafoka explores the activation of storytelling in a longing for home and freedom.

Organized by The Gallery in LOST EDEN.
