JOSEPH MAIDA
Tuesday, March 3 / ART Auditorium

Joseph Maida presents his work and discusses his trajectory as an artist who has divided his time among New York City, Tokyo, and Honolulu.

Joseph Maida is an artist based in New York City. His work has been exhibited at the Queens Museum of Art, the Bronx Museum of Art, Wallspace, Artist’s Space and Art in General, among others, and at international institutions including the Reina Sofia National Museum, Madrid; the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdan; the Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; and the Nikon Salons, Tokyo and Osaka. Maida’s work has received support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Japan – U.S. Friendship Commission and the Joan Mitchell Foundation. For the last decade, he has had teaching appointments at Yale University, the School of Visual Arts, SUNY Purchase, and Parsons, the New School for Design. Maida received his BA, summa cum laude, from Columbia University and his MFA from Yale University. He is represented by Daniel Cooney Fine Art.

3-5 pm, Reception

Tuesday, March 3 ART Auditorium
5:15-5:50 pm, Reception
6:00-7:30 pm, Lecture Joseph Maida: Creative City Boy

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.
