The first works of Pacific art entered the Gallery’s collection in 1962, at the instigation of the Gallery’s deputy director Tony Tuckson. Four years later the ground-breaking exhibition Melanesian art, curated by Tuckson, opened at the Gallery, with over 370 works from public and private collections. One of the most comprehensive exhibitions of Pacific art held in an Australian gallery, it featured work from Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Western New Guinea.
