The Performing Arts – Making the Invisible Visible Apia, Samoa 27 November-1December 2017
Adrienne Kaeppler has suggested that one (key) role that art plays in Pacific societies is to make the invisible visible. In particular, the performing arts have developed over the millennia as integral aspects of ritual, political and economic exchanges, and in some cases entertainment.

There is just one month left to enter the Aesthetica Art Prize 2016, with major prizes including £5,000 courtesy of Hiscox, a group exhibition, publication in an anthology and editorial coverage in Aesthetica Magazine (311,000 readership).
These prizes present emerging and established artists with the opportunity to expand their career and further their engagement internationally with the art world.
