Humuhumu’s description

The Musée du Quai Branly (or, the Quai Branly Museum, for us English-types) is a new museum dedicated to non-Western art, from Oceania, the Americas and Africa. The museum has a large, permanent collection of Oceanic art from Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, New Zealand, and more. The artefacts in this colletion are traditional and not Polynesian Pop, but are an excellent example of the influences that Polynesian Pop grew out of.
From June 24-September 28, 2014, the museum is hosting a special exhibition, "Tiki Pop," curated by Sven Kirsten, author of The Book of Tiki and Tiki Modern. Kirsten has collected specimens of Polynesian Pop culture to tell the story of the rise, fall, and rebirth of American Polynesian idealism. To complement the exhibit, a companion book and documentary are also being produced.
The museum is very near the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.

The Tiki Pop exhibition will remain forever in our dreams, a mai tai-flavored memory of la vie tiki Parisienne. It was startling to immerse oneself in tiki, to get lost down the rabbit hole, then glance up through a window to see the Eiffel Tower.

For me a good but light exibition...that not represent the power of this fashion in 50's and sixties....

I prefer the "the book of tiki" bough in 2000 than the tiki pop book of exhibition...

The Tiki Pop Exhibition at the Musee Quai Branly is a Tiki-lovers dream! I added a day in Paris while en route from Bangkok to Nice, solely to see this exhibition. It did not disappoint! Now I'm sitting down here on the French Riviera thinking about taking the TGV back up to Paris just to go through it again..... A must for any hard-core fan of Tiki!
