taba naba

Taking place between March 24 and September 30, a new
collection of artworks will be displayed at the Musee de Oceanographique de
Monaco. The exhibition, Taba Naba, will showcase a range of Aboriginal and
Oceanic artwork by both traditional and contemporary artists.

The exhibition will be divided into three parts, each
exploring key themes expressed throughout Aboriginal and Oceanic artwork. The
first, Defending the Oceans at the Heart of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island
Art by Stephane Jacob, explores how 50 Aboriginal artists have depicted the
pollution of the oceans, sometimes even approached with humour and

Living Waters, the Sordello & Missana Collection, the
second part of the exhibition, curated by Erica Izett, showcases the work of
modern Aboriginal artists and how they have captured their relationship with
the water. Many of the works feature a mythological creature known as the
Rainbow Serpent, said to represent not only the importance of water but also
the changing seasons. This part of the exhibition also contains paintings from
Prince Albert II of Monaco’s own private collection.

Oceania Islanders: Past Masters in Sea Navigation and
Artistic Expression, by Didier Zanette, makes up the final element of the
exhibition, and seeks to compare how similar and different the Western world
and the indigenous people of Australia are. Among the items exhibited are
navigational objects, large-scale marine animal representations and Papuan

This new exhibition is perfect for anyone staying at our
