Declaration maps a feminist trajectory in contemporary Pacific art.

Artists in this exhibition declare a new set of principles to form a Pacific feminist agenda, one that acknowledges the existing ways that Indigenous and Pacific societies have always empowered women.

Acknowledging matriarchal societies and reciprocal kinship roles across the Pacific, allows for a notion of feminism that is inclusive of Indigenous gender identities such as leitī and also men. Across installation, performance, photography, and moving image, the artworks in this exhibition collectively positionPacific feminism as a tool of empowerment.
