BINDING & LOOPING : TRANSFER OF PRESENCE IN CONTEMPORARY PACIFIC ART
October 5 – December 5, 2014

Binding and Looping: Transfer of Presence in Contemporary Pacific Art brings together artists from Hawai‘i and the Pacific for whom fiber and concepts of binding are both a respected tradition and an inspiration for contemporary art.

The exhibition includes work by artists from Hawai‘i, Tonga, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea, and Micronesia. Dr. Deborah Waite, professor of Pacific art history at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, is the curator.The artists include: Bernice Akamine, Maile Andrade, Kaili Chun, Brett Graham, Patsy Herman, Angelina Jilak, Florence Jaukae, Noelle Kahanu, Cathy Kata, Maria Kenda, Kapulani Landgraf, Marques Marzan, Moana Nepia, Ani O’Neill, Su‘a Sulu‘ape Petelo Alaiva‘a, Lisa Reihana, Filipe Tohi, Maika‘i Tubbs, Michel Tuffery, Sheyne Tuffery, Christina Wirihana.

“Technology, Prosthesis, and Material Practice”
Bryan Czibesz, Intersections Visiting Artist

The practice of ceramic is implicitly tied to ideas of culture, labor, art, utility, and technology. These issues will be explored in the exhibition Re / Charting, featuring the individual and collaborative work of Bryan Czibesz and Shawn Spangler. Focusing on the differences and similarities between hand-forming processes and digital reproduction technologies, the show not only probe how new tools can be used in the creation of new forms and surfaces, but also considers theoretical questions regarding the slippery boundaries between convention and invention. Czibesz is an Assistant Professor at the State University of New York, New Paltz. Spangler is the newest faculty member at the Department of Art and Art History, University of Hawaii at Manoa. They have been collaborating since 2010.

Square - Two Views

ON O‘AHU : TWO VIEWS 
March 1 – April 10, 2015
University of Hawai‘i Art Gallery

Sunday, March 1
3-5 pm, Reception
University of Hawai’i Art Gallery

Phil Jung investigates the direct and indirect effects of O‘ahu’s changing population on its limited resources. While photographing the island’s diverse social landscape, he explores the ways that cultural identity, wealth distribution, social mobility and gentrification factor into its current demographics. These photos act as a loose narrative of contemporary culture in Hawai‘i and its ever-changing population.

Joseph Maida presents New Natives, a group of portraits of aspiring male models of mixed ethnicity and race from Hawai‘i. The subjects were scouted from New York through social media and photographed 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 that upend conventional hegemony on multiple registers.
