a Bit na Ta is a contemporary soundscape that explores the one hundred years leading to Papua New Guinea’s independence in 1975. The exhibition centres around a film made by Melbourne musician David Bridie, in collaboration with the Tolai people of East New Britain (an island that is part of PNG), particularly photographer/historian Gideon Kakabin and singer George Telek. It is accompanied by commissioned artworks and artefacts from the museum’s collections.
