A conversation with Kihara and Jacqueline Lo (University of Adelaide and the Australian National University) on topics related to the Fa’afafine community, Gauguin, and climate change will follow.

This program will stream live from the Arsenale in Venice and is a part of the Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange (GAX).
