The Museum of Anthropology at UBC will reopen its doors to the public on June 13, 2024 at 5pm, following an 18-month closure that saw the successful completion of cutting-edge seismic upgrades to its Great Hall, coupled with the revitalization and reinterpretation of displays of Northwest Coast Indigenous carvings, poles, weavings and other works from the past and present. Along with the Museum’s reopening, MOA will present two exhibitions sharing Indigenous perspectives on colonial history and in Pursuit of Venus [infected] (Western Canada premiere) by famed M?ori artist, Lisa Reihana and To Be Seen, To Be Heard: First Nations in Public Spaces, 1900–1965 (world premiere). MOA’s reopening this summer coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Museum’s opening to the public.
