The musée du quai Branly presents MAORI: Their treasures have a soul, featuring Maori culture through 250 pieces from the collections of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. This exhibition, never shown before outside New Zealand, is a testimony to a strong and living culture. It affirms a people’s will to master their own future by emphasising tino rangatiratanga: Maori self-determination and control over things Maori.



The exhibition presents a great range of artwork, including sculpture, adornment, daily and sacred objects, architectural elements, photographs, audiovisual documents, and so on. It highlights the links between taonga (ancestral Maori treasures) and contemporary art, shedding light on important issues and debates for Maori today.


 


The exhibition presents Maori culture as seen by Maori, free from Western views and biases. The heart of the exhibition features art that addresses the political, spiritual, and aesthetic developments that have shaped Maori culture.
