Maketi Ples takes Pacific Art to Australia

Maketi Ples was established in 2011 by Pacific Islands Trade and Invest to introduce a wide range of contemporary and traditional Pacific Islands works of art to an Australian audience of consumers, designers, retailers and importers

Since then, Maketi Ples has become the premier event for contemporary Pacific Islands-based artisans. Over 140 artists and creators have exhibited during this time, bringing their work to the attention of Australian buyers.
