Tattoo played a significant role as a marker of status, wealth, and pride in Polynesian societies. A more fluid, creative tattoo tradition is being practised today.
Today the art of the Pacific Islanders is still trapped within its category. The display cases of the institutions have not been shattered. Yet the very act of exhibiting demonstrates that the making and the appreciation of art is a dynamic process. Institutions are caught by a need to both legitimise themselves and acknowledge (and perhaps attempt to control) the art of the migrant communities.
