Tiki Pop. American Fantasies of a Polynesian Paradise, exhibition
From Tuesday, June 24 2014 to Sunday, September 28 2014
Polynesian origins, pop culture.
Emblematic of American popular culture of the 50s and 60s, the Tiki style depicts fantasy imagery of the South Seas. Its origins are fanciful representations of the South Pacific, as told by the stories of explorers in the eighteenth century, writers and artists in the nineteenth century, and relayed through adventure novels and movies that popularized this reinvented vision of Polynesian cultures.
From the 1930s onwards, Tiki style was to influence architecture and interior decor in bars and restaurants in America.
Tiki imagery is a very free adaptation of original Polynesian imagery, and can be found in traditional or modern versions invading everyday life on all sides.
Nearly 450 works - including photographs, films, music recordings and archive documents - testify to this craze which has became almost a way of life.
