Ka Leo 9d: exhibit celebrates 90 yearsJanuary 16, 2012 - May 11, 2012
Mānoa Campus, Hamilton Library Bridge Gallery
The University of Hawai`i at Manoa student newspaper celebrates its 90th anniversary with a multi-media exhibit at Hamilton Library’s bridge gallery that depicts highlights from the past ninety years.
Curated by UH graduates (Erica Lenentine, BA-Art, 2011, and Chad Kikuchi, BA-Art, 2010), “Ka Leo 9d” asks viewers to tweet their responses to six questions scattered through the show and inspired by the content.
Ka Leo has had 104 editors in its 90 years and many of those have gone onto careers for national and local newspapers and magazines and television stations. Front pages from the decades are displayed, along with touch-screen access to the website, kaleo.org, which provides a link to an exhibit slide show.
Throughout Ka Leo’s ninety years, students have made all content decisions. Curators Lenetine and Kikuchi wanted to engage people in a discussion about those decisions. Cartoons from the past were blown up and printed on vinyl stickers applied to the floor.
The exhibit runs through May 11 and is open to the public every day except Saturday, when the library is closed. Hours can be viewed at:
Responses about the exhibit can be tweeted with the hashtag #kaleo90
