IMAYŌ : JAPAN’S NEW TRADITIONISTS

imayo

Jelly Beans-E  EXHIBITION

The exhibition IMAYŌ: JAPAN’S NEW TRADITIONISTS shows that the past is alive and with us. Animé, manga, and pop culture, along with Japan’s rich art and craft traditions provide a focus for this exhibition of contemporary art. Six artists utilize their innovations and technical mastery to propel those traditions toward new directions in the twenty-first century. Unique works are presented at two venues.

October 2 – December 2, 2016
The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa

October 13, 2016 – January 8, 2017
Honolulu Museum of Art

Additional Exhibition-Related Program!

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION
The exhibition examines the inspirational power of historical Japanese art and craft traditions in the work of six contemporary artists, all of whom utilize their expertise in the history and technical mastery of Japan’s rich pre-twentieth century art and craft traditions. Their artworks demonstrate how cultural heritage can inspire transformational and innovative thinking, with the potential to renew and reinvigorate the familiar and the conventional. The exhibition both honors and transcends the confines of “tradition,” reflecting and commenting upon Japan’s own complex relationship with the past. This approach is ironically referenced in the exhibition title word Imayō, a Japanese term of ancient origin that means “in the contemporary style.” After its presentation in Honolulu, Imayō will travel to The Shoto Museum Museum of Art (Shōtō Bijutsukan) in Tokyo. Additional venues are under consideration.

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS
ISHII Tōru, KIMURA Ryōko, MITSUTA Haruo, SOMEYA Satoshi, TANADA Kōji, and YAMAMOTO Tarō

She creates conceptual objects that often question and re-contextualize their original materials and conventional use, often blurring the line between genres, or seeking to push the technical boundaries and expectations of a particular medium. Jacqueline has worked primarily with the book form for eighteen years. She received her MFA from UHM in 2000.

Select group exhibitions include: Odd Volumes: Book Art from the Allan Chasanoff Collection (Yale University Art Gallery), Boundless:The Book Transformed in Contemporary Art (Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum), The Book Borrowers: Contemporary Artists Transforming the Book (Bellevue Arts Museum), Unhinged: Book Art on the Cutting Edge (Whatcom Museum), Metamorphosis: The Art of Altered Books (Fuller Craft Museum), and NextNewPaper (San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art). Jacqueline is working on a solo exhibition in the Fall of 2017 at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

THE LAMINATED PRINT : ORIGINS + PROCESS OF CHINE COLLÉ

THE LAMINATED PRINT : ORIGINS + PROCESS OF CHINE COLLÉ
SEPTEMBER 4 – DECEMBER 9, 2016
John Young Museum of Art

Special events + MORE!

The Laminated Print: Origins + Process of Chine Collé is a collaborative project that brings together contemporary printmakers, conservators, and art historians to inspire visual thinking about the process of chine collé and draw relationships to paper traditions from China and Japan.

Chine collé, also called papier collé or chine appliqué, refers to the process in which a thin sheet of paper is simultaneously printed upon and mounted onto a thicker backing sheet. The process is used in various ways today including in lithography and intaglio printing. Chine collé brings out a range of visual possibilities in the conjunction of ink and paper, including richer tones, finer details, smoother textures, and an elegant style. The delicate techniques of chine collé originated from China and Japan where traditions of papermaking and mounting traditions have existed for hundreds of years. Chinese and Japanese mounting and conservation techniques require highly refined skills and are considered an art onto itself.

The exhibition includes prints by Charles Cohan, Duncan Dempster, Deborah Nehmad, and Yoshimi Teh, and a selection of Chinese and Japanese scrolls and screens from the collection of the John Young Museum of Art. The scrolls and screens were selected and researched by Gary Liu, art historian and specialist in Chinese art, and Hiroko Sakurai, East Asian painting and paper conservator. Conservation workshops by Hiroko Sakurai and demos by chine collé printmakers will be held in conjunction with this exhibition.

SPONSORS:
This exhibition and related programming is sponsored and supported by the
Department of Art + Art History, John Young Museum of Art, Student Activity and Program Fee Board, Honolulu Printmakers, and Hawai’i Museum Association.

WAIKIKI PARC FEATURES JANET TRAN

SQUARE - TRAN Janet

Jelly Beans-S  SATELLITE

JANET TRAN at WAIKIKI PARC GALLERY
June 30 – September 9, 2016, EXTENDED through November 10
Public Reception: Thursday, June 30, 2016 / 6-8pm

Because of Honolulu’s recent rapid urban growth, Janet Tran became interested in how built environment influences human experience. She bases her works on recognizable structures, forms, and elements drawn from architecture, but jars our expectations by using unconventional materials ranging from leaves to cardboard. In this exhibition Tran playfully continues this investigation by merging modular modernist sculptures with plush.

Tran was recently awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Department of Art + Art History, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM).

This exhibition is an expanded arts partnership of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, the Halekulani and its sister hotel, the Waikiki Parc.

Guitarist Aaron Cardenas will provide music at the opening reception. Cardenas, received his Bachelor of Music degree from UHM’s Department of Music, and will be attending Yale University’s graduate program this September. He has studied with guitar virtuosos Benjamin Verdery, Frederic Hand, Carlos Barbosa Lima, and the Brazilian Guitar Duo’s Douglas Lora and João Luiz.

SPONSORS: University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Department of Art + Art History, College of Arts + Humanities, and Waikiki Parc Hotel – Hospitality Sponsor for the Arts at UH Mānoa

PAINTED FORMS : RECENT INVESTIGATIONS BY TOM WALKER

PAINTED FORMS : RECENT INVESTIGATIONS BY TOM WALKER
NOVEMBER 7 – 18, 2016
Commons Gallery

Painted Forms: Recent Investigations by Tom Walker, is an exhibition of the artist’s new work.

Artist’s Statement:
Flatness within painting has been more of a concern of mine in recent years. It has been a uniquely characteristic property of painting that I have both embraced and rejected at times. Quite simply, when looking at any surface with only two dimensions, our depth perception is an illusion. When looking at any surface with three dimensions, depth perception is a reality. This division is examined and tested by these pieces you see here. These works focus on that conscious depth perception of the viewer by stripping away any mimetic or abstract elements, and focusing on non-objective painting through color, design, form and line.

Gallery Hours / M-F 10 am – 4 pm; Sun. 12 – 4 pm;

WAIKIKI PARC FEATURES DAVID HARADA

Jelly Beans-S  SATELLITE

DAVID HARADA at WAIKIKI PARC GALLERY
November 17, 2016 – February 3, 2017
Public Reception: Thursday, November 17, 2016 / 6-8pm

David Harada’s sculptures are highlighted as part of an expanded arts partnership of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM), the Halekulani and its sister hotel, the Waikiki Parc.

Born and raised in Mililani, Hawai‘i, David Harada received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in glass from the Department of Art + Art History, UHM, in 2016. Glass inspires him because of its transparency, refractivity, and quality to be perceived as a liquid or a solid. His current work includes sculptures made of laminated glass that are ground and highly polished.

Harada states, “Memories are stratified by thoughts and emotions. They may appear permanent but like gemstones they erode and chip away over time. Each newly exposed facet reveals a layer of hidden history, providing new perspectives on the whole.”

Harada’s recent group exhibitions include the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce’s 37th annual Commitment to Excellence (2015), Honolulu Museum of Art School; Vision: 2016 Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition, The Art Gallery, UHM; Viscosity (2015), Commons Gallery, UHM; and Where Dreams Unfold (2013), Koa Gallery, Kapi‘olani Community College, Honolulu.

Guitarist Christopher Hopper will provide music at the opening reception in this series of up-and-coming young artists’ exhibitions at the Waikiki Parc. Hopper currently is working toward a Bachelor of Music degree in performance at the Department of Music, UHM. He has studied with guitar virtuosos Carlos Barbosa Lima, Benjamin Verdery, John Dearman, Andrew York, and the Brazilian Guitar Duo’s Douglas Lora and João Luiz.
