ON O‘AHU : TWO VIEWS

The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa

Artist photographers Phil Jung and Joseph Maida each present a unique view of the island of O‘ahu. Jung is currently teaching at the Department of Art + Art History, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM). Jung’s half of the exhibition is titled O‘ahu. Maida’s is titled New Natives.

Tuesday, April 7 ART Auditorium
5:15-5:50 pm, Reception
6:00-7:30 pm, Lecture Phil Jung: Recent Work on O‘ahu

Phil Jung offers an exploration into the island of O‘ahu’s extremely complex social system. The cultural identity, wealth distribution and social mobility of Hawaii’s residents frequently contrasts with its idyllic backdrop. Staying clear of common mainstream assumptions, Jung uses his camera to explore the relationship between the people who inhabit O‘ahu and the landscape that binds them all together. His photos act as a loose narrative of contemporary culture in Hawai‘i.

New Natives is a group of portraits of aspiring male models of mixed ethnicity and race from Hawai‘i. From New York, Joseph Maida scouted the subjects through social media before photographing them in their local terrain around the metropolis of Honolulu. Drawing from Hawaii’s royal history as well as its Eastern and Western influences, this series introduces visions of masculinity, identity, and sexuality, which upend conventional hegemony on multiple registers.

Public Reception: Thursday, January 8, 2015 / 6-8pm

Theresa expects to receive a BFA degree in May, 2015. She states, “My work is a celebration of the maximal, the baroque, and the obsessive.
