Open now at Museum of Antropology at the University of British Columbia is Tatau: Samoan Tattooing and Global Culture. The exhibition is curated by art historian Peter Brunt and includes 40 photographs from Mark Adams. Tatau runs until September 30, 2009.

Above is a longer video than normally placed on the site. The clip features Dr. Albert Wendt speaking on the tradition of Samoan tattoo. It provides both context for the exhibition and a good deal of information for those of us unable to travel to British Columbia.
