Please evaluating the Museum “Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum” in relation to representation and the salvage paradigm.

Read representation AND Clifford’s discussion of museum exhibition and the “salvage paradigm.”
*Representation is the issue in this paper
In the analysis of the museum exhibition consider some of the following issues: Is there an over-arching theme to the exhibitions? What agendas are in play? What ideas area communicated through the exhibition? What is the experience in the gallery space? How is the material organized? Is contextual information provided? What information is given (and what is withheld)? What ideas are connoted through the exhibition?
