FIJI TIMES is a non-profit exhibition project in a private Auckland studio space featuring experimental artwork reflecting on Fiji’s current political situation or the times of Fiji.

The visual reference to Fiji Times Ltd’s historic masthead is an acknowledgment of the newspaper’s role in communicating and reflecting Fiji society and politics. The use of the words ‘Fiji Times’ references the ability for visual arts to communicate and reflect society in a similar way to the media.

The title aimed to encourage artists to reflect on their role as cultural interpreters and use their work as a platform for commentary, using visual language. The font we have employed on the e-flier was selected to be similar to the historic Fiji Times masthead but not identical.

The FIJI TIMES exhibition has no relationship with Fiji Times Ltd.
