Human Connectivity Explored In New Windward CC Exhibit

I DON’T KNOW HOW I FEEL, BUT I FEEL YOU exhibit poster

It’s happened to everyone. You meet someone for the first time and feel like you already know them. How is this possible? I DON’T KNOW HOW I FEEL, BUT I FEEL YOU at Windward Community College’s Gallery ʻIolani, April 7–May 2. The exhibition considers our seemingly immediate and innate ability to connect with others without reason or understanding of how such a sensation is created.

I DON’T KNOW HOW I FEEL, BUT I FEEL YOU features the work of 10 Oʻahu-based visual artists who are all connected in some way—Shilo Garner, Kainoa Gruspe, Travis Hancock, Michelle Harada, Lila Lee, Erin Lenchanko, Dana Min, Alec Singer, Maxfield Smith and Mason Valenzuela. The exhibit is curated by Maxfield Smith.

Gallery ʻIolani became a kind of laboratory for experimentation—artists were invited to create tactile works in response to the exhibit’s theme. They explored the mysteries of human to human connectivity. The audience is invited to participate and are given the choice to touch, to look, to know.
