Article 'Then and Now: the Stanley Gordon Moriarty Collection of Papua New Guinea Highlands art' provides background to the exhibition 'Plumes and Pearlshells' at AGNSW. Susan Cochrane interviewed curator Natalie Wilson investigating the attitudes towards collecting and displaying PNG art in the 1960s- 70s through the lens of the relationship between Moriarty and Tony Tuckson, then AGNSW Deputy Director, who stablished a high profile for Melanesian art at AGNSW. From 1973 (wehn Tuckson dies) Melanesian art ceased to be a collection priority at AGNSW and it is remarkable that it has taken just over 40 years for the so-called "lull in activity" to be reversed. The article was published in Art Monthly Australia, No.269 May 2014, pp32-39.
