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. In their individual ways, these artists consider their indigenous binding and looping customs and at the same time incorporate different media to create new works in sculpture, printmaking, photography, painting, and video. 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.
