Dotted in the South Pacific, south of Hawaii and only six hours non-stop from Sydney, lies the small, beautiful archipelago of the Cook Islands.

When we think of modern art we think of the Tate Modern or the MOMA. But the tiny nation of the Cook Islands in the South Pacific is also offering itself to tourists as a budding modern art scene, but in a truly tropical environment… and the weather is definitely better here than in London or NY (we might argue the art is, too!).
