Wednesday, October 1, 2014 — Sunday, October 26, 2014


A Frost Art Museum Community Gallery Exhibition.

In 2013, Professor Tudor Parfitt, Director of FIU Global Jewish Communities Program, and the world's leading authority on the Lost Tribes of Israel, led an expedition to Papua New Guinea, accompanied by 4 FIU students, to try to unravel the mystery of the Gogodala people's identity.

This exhibition, a representative presentation of recent Gogodala carvings and other martials, brings this research to life.

Curated by Professor Annette B. Fromm, in collaboration with Tudor Parfitt.
