DEBORAH G NEHMAD
WASTED
April 9 – May 9, 2015
Reception: April 9, 6 – 8pm
KIM FOSTER GALLERY
529 West 20th Street
New York, NY 10011

An exhibition of works on paper that address the issue of gun violence in America. The artist incorporates repetitive mark making to translate visually what cannot be adequately conveyed through the abstraction of the written language – that nothing has changed in terms of gun violence in the US over the past decade.

After years as a practicing attorney and working in politics, Nehmad chose a new path and earned an MFA specializing in printmaking at the University of Hawai‘i. Her work can be found in many public and private collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, Yale University Art Gallery, the Davis Museum and Cultural Center at Wellesley College, Smith College Museum of Art, Hood Museum at Dartmouth College, the Hammer Museum of UCLA, the Honolulu Museum of Art and the Hawaii State Art Museum.

Jelly Beans-E  EXHIBITION

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

Artist photographers Phil Jung and Joseph Maida each present a unique view of the island of O‘ahu. Jung is currently teaching at the Department of Art + Art History, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM). Jung’s half of the exhibition is titled O‘ahu. Maida’s is titled New Natives.

EVENTS free and open to the public.

Sunday, March 1 The Art Gallery
2-3 pm, Gallery walk-through with Phil Jung + Joseph Maida
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.
