O le ūa na fua mai Manuʻa brings fresh international perspectives to current endeavours to embody and awaken Indigenous sensual and spoken languages. The exhibition takes its title from a Sāmoan proverb that describes the incoming rain from the Sāmoan island of Manuʻa (currently within the unincorporated territory of the United States of America) and bittersweet or melancholic moments leading to much-needed change.

Wansolwara: One Salt Water is a series of exhibitions, performances and events from across the Pacific and throughout the Great Ocean. Wansolwara – a pidgin word from the Solomon Islands meaning ‘one-salt-water’ or ‘one ocean, one people’ – reflects not a single ocean, but rather a connected waterscape that holds distinct and diverse cultures and communities.

Skye Wagner’s photographs explore the circulation and digital malleability of contemporary images. Made from physical objects and printed imagery, they mix vernacular photographic tropes, commodity goods and cultural fragments. The original images and objects are released from their prescribed function and become part of an unruly network that moves throughout works in the exhibition. Animals, food, body parts and consumer products all form incongruous relations.

In this exhibition Samuel Hodge draws on his twenty-year archive of artistic practice to present an ambiguous and unpredictable installation in which disparate elements interrupt and collide with misaligned ‘official’ histories. In ‘The Wit of the Staircase’, Hodge considers the imponderability of a body of work that possesses his imagination and, at the same time, offers the audience endless points of access within its staged narratives.
