PAA EUROPE 2022 CONFERENCE AT THE MUSÉE DU QUAI BRANLY – JACQUES CHIRAC, PARIS GENDERED OBJECTS IN OCEANIA. 13-15 SEPTEMBER 2022

The annual PAA-E meeting entitled Gendered objects in Oceania will be held at the Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac from 13 until 15 September 2022 to coincide with the exhibition Power & Prestige: The Art of Clubs in Oceania (7 June – 25 September 2022).

As the exhibition demonstrates, clubs are sculptures, exchange valuables, markers of authority and status, embodiments of divinity and accessories of performance. However, clubs are first and foremost weapons that through their association with warfare may be seen as expressions of masculinity. The gender identity linked to clubs forms the inspiration of the meeting as we hope to explore whether and how objects are being gendered in Oceania.

The meeting follows on the Parcours des mondes, which will be held from 6 until 11 September 2022.
