Hey,

So here's the news : we've been working for a few month on making a exhibition about tiki art.
Well, I mostly helped Cyril (uke player, tiki connoisseur) giving him contacts, helping him organising it with the museum owners.

So, here it is : the museum is at Sète, in the south of France, it is going to be from the 18th of June till the 30th of October (and then, probably in another museum).

There's going to be plenty of tiki art :

- real pre-contact tikis (on wood, stone)
- 2 huge resin moai
- 1 Vanuatu tiki drum
- Papouasian masks and other items
- Tiki poles made by Phil Totem, Karotte
- Tahitians carved ukuleles
- Contemporary Works by Kevin Ancell, Raymond Pettibond, Steicyk...
- Paintings by our own Moritz R, Hasenkamm, Sunny Buick
- Duke Carter will let us have a part of his huge tiki mug collection (about 150), and some velvet paintings he did.
- Otto should let the museum have some of his exhibition paintings
- our british fella Cheekytiki will make a fantastic real tiki bar, he will stay there to work on it for a few days.
- I will let them have some of my personnal collections : Aloha fezzes, Shag prints, ukes, paintings, mugs...
- Cyril's collection
- Film posters

And lots of different surf items, 50's artifacts...

The poster is made by Shag, there will be a catalog in July...

I'm very excited about that, and I really hope some of you could make it this summer.

Thanks for the reply

yes, there's supposed to be great quality prints, and Shag is supposed to come the 16th june for the opening to sign those...
Now I don't know yet if we'll be able to sell those online.

Cheers Virani,
I've been waiting for this to be posted for ages.
This is going to be a great show, and I can't wait to get started on our part of it.
Vive la France!

Congrats on the exhibition. Tell me, since this is a museum exhibition, is there an art historical, anthropological, archaeological or otherwise academic slant to the exhibition/catalogue? Or is it based primarily on matters of contemporary style/commercial adaptations? I'm interested in how the subject of tiki is handled in museum exhibitions.

No, it's all kind of tiki art, we arranged to have collections from Oceanic museum and private collection and we're mixing it with new tiki art and 50's, 60's as well.
It's all the evolution of tiki art in 1 exhibition.

Amy and I are thrilled to be a part of this Tiki exhibit which promises to really be awesome! Virani and Cyril have really gone above and beyond the call to bring Tiki to our European ohana. We just got word that the show will indeed travel to at least one other museum after it closes at MIAM, maybe more. Let's hope we see more Tiki material and exhibits in "serious" venues getting the respect it deserves.

We were in the middle of packing a crate with the stuff we are lending to the exhibit and thought it looked funny to see the sofa buried under a pile of Tiki mugs so we took a picture:



They are all safely boxed up for their long voyage. Next time I'll see them will be in the South of France. Unfortunately, Amy will not get to see the show—she'll be home working on Exotica stuff and taking care of our little dude.

Can't wait to see you in June, Virani, and I hope I have the opportunity to meet many of the European TC contingency.

-Duke

Awesome to hear tiki is spreading like wild fire! I was recently informed that a painting of mine that Otto owns is on its way over! I'm very excited to be included!

Good job Virani, spread the Tiki. I hope the mags got to you safely. Would like to talk with you more about the show so we can put it in Tiki Mag.

Nick

Thanks Nick,

Hey, I haven't received the magasine yet. I hope I'll have it soon... and yeah, that would be a good idea to have some of the mag at the museum.

But anyway, I'd be happy to give you more info about the exhibition...and I'll take pics of the opening that could be interesting for you.

Virani,

My apologies. I'll send more to you today UPS. The mailhouse I went through really blew it. I have a meeting with them next week. Good luck with the exhibit.
