Exibition Precendent Study

The exhibition of Oceanic Art at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in NYC features sculpture and decorative arts from Polynesia, Micronesia, and Melanesia. The exhibition is very successful in organizing the galleries by region and numbering the galleries for easy understanding. The windows, light, blue color, sculpture displayed on the ceiling and throughout the floor draws the visitor into the space. The natural light allows the visitor to experience the artifacts the way they would be in their natural habitat. The entire exhibition gives a sense of simplicity calmness, and airiness reminiscent of the islands. Some of the artifacts are featured in clear white display cases while others are displayed openly throughout the gallery. The free-standing artifacts allows the visitors to have a 360 degree view.
