The National Museum of Qatar will host nearly 130 cherished works from The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s unparalleled Oceanic collection, which are travelling outside of The Met’s walls for the first time in nearly a century, as the Michael C. Rockefeller Wing is being renovated. The exhibition is organised by themes—Voyaging, Ancestors and Time—which demonstrate the interconnectedness of Pacific Islanders and their rich cultural heritage, and the dynamic artistic expressions on display that date back four centuries.
