WHAT is Intersections?
Each academic year, the Intersections Program invites artists and scholars, known locally, nationally, and internationally, in order to enliven and promote the growth of arts appreciation and awareness on O'ahu. Intersections organizes programming that explores the relevance of artistic practice to inspire critical thinking and broaden perspectives on contemporary cultural issues, often as they relate specifically to Hawaii-based issues.
WHO are our Intersections artists and scholars?
We invite 2-5 artists and scholars a year. Most are nominated by faculty and students in the Art and Art History Department on a two-year cycle. The program also often collaborates with other local arts institutions such as Shangri La, the Contemporary Museum, and The ARTS at Mark’s Garage, as well as other UHM departments.
A few of our PAST visiting artists and scholars include: Shazhia Sikander, Paul Pfeiffer, Ann Hamilton, Wu Hung, Nick Cave, Mel Chin, Linda Nochlin, Pepon Osorio, Gary Hill, and Lucy Lippard.
