Tiki pop, l'Amérique rêve son paradis polynésienMusée du Quai Branly, Paris
Tuesday 24th June to Sunday 28 September 2014
Exhibition curated by Sven Kirsten
Tiki bars, wahini, flower-bedecked bowling halls and mesmerising music: far from authentic Polynesian culture, Tiki Pop presents us with a Polynesia as it was imagined by Americans in the 20th century.
It all began with the voyage of the French explorer Bougainville and
the discovery of Polynesia. The great travellers arrived in these
exotic lands and the dream began.
