In 1998, Pacific Notion, at the Melbourne Art Fair introduced the commercial art market to the work of Niki Hastings-McFall, Ioane Ioane, Fatu Feu’u, Andy Leleisi’uao, Dagmar Dyck and Lily Laita.

Organised by Deborah White the stall occurred at a time where the commercial representation of Pacific art and artists was fairly non-existent, despite the depth and breadth of Pacific art production occurring in the 1990s.

Fast forward 20 years to 2018, Whitespace, from their new gallery presents Pacific Notion: 20 Years On, including the work of the original Pacific Notion artists, Niki Hastings-McFall, Ioane Ioane and Lily Laita, as well as, Kenneth Merrick, Lianne Edwards and Raymond Sagapolutele.
