Paul Jacoulet’s Vision of Micronesia (review)

Paul Jacoulet’s Vision of Micronesia (review) book and media reviews Two other features of the catalog deserve mention. The first is an annotated list of art objects from New Ireland in museum and private collections. The exhibition scholars located or received information about over twelve thousand objects in 123 public museums and sixty-five private museums and collections. Gunn estimates that probably another 8,000 pieces exist, resulting in a total of about 20,000 objects from New Ireland in collections outside the Islands. These figures represent awesome evidence of the process of colonialism in the Pacific. The second feature is the full bibliography containing many books and articles published throughout the years on New Ireland. Bibliographies such as this one invite further exploration of the many recorded opinions and photographic records that make up the documented history of these islands and their art objects. Long after the exhibition closes, the catalog will remain as a valuable scholarly work that should encourage similarly thorough explorations of museum collections and Island interpretive contributions for other parts of the Pacific--a postcolonial process that has already begun in several areas and will hopefully continue.

Abstract

book and media reviews Two other features of the catalog deserve mention. The first is an annotated list of art objects from New Ireland in museum and private collections. The exhibition scholars located or received information about over twelve thousand objects in 123 public museums and sixty-five private museums and collections. Gunn estimates that probably another 8,000 pieces exist, resulting in a total of about 20,000 objects from New Ireland in collections outside the Islands. These figures represent awesome evidence of the process of colonialism in the Pacific. The second feature is the full bibliography containing many books and articles published throughout the years on New Ireland. Bibliographies such as this one invite further exploration of the many recorded opinions and photographic records that make up the documented history of these islands and their art objects. Long after the exhibition closes, the catalog will remain as a valuable scholarly work that should encourage similarly thorough explorations of museum collections and Island interpretive contributions for other parts of the Pacific--a postcolonial process that has already begun in several areas and will hopefully continue.
