Sistar S’pacific, aka Rosanna Raymond, is an innovator of the contemporary Pasifika art scene as a long-standing member of the art collective the Pacific Sisters, and founding member of the SaVAge K’lub. Over the past twenty years, Raymond's activities have made her a notable producer of — and commentator on — contemporary Pacific Island culture, in Aotearoa New Zealand, the UK, and the USA. She specialises in working within museums and higher education institutions as an artist, performer, curator, guest speaker, poet and workshop leader.

Raymond is an Honorary Research Associate at the Department of Anthropology and Institute of Archaeology at University College London and has been awarded a Chester Dale Fellowship at the Metropolitan Museum in NYC this year.

Raymond has achieved international renown for her performances, installations, body adornment, and spoken word. She is a published writer and poet; her works are held by museums and private collectors across the globe. Since returning to New Zealand to live she has had her first solo exhibition. A dynamic artist, her work is consistent in its celebration of Mana Moana and the engagements it invokes and evokes; whether between museum collections and contemporary Pacific art or museums and urban spaces.
