"Disappearing Honolulu" takes its title from a project undertaken by Francis Haar in the late 1960s. Haar’s photographs and film are valuable documents of a not so distant past that capture one of Honolulu’s diverse, multicultural communities in the midst of urban displacement – themes that remain relevant today as Honolulu undergoes another period of transformation. Approximately 40 black and white silver gelatin prints will be accompanied by a continuous digital projection of the film, "Aala – Life and Death of a Community."
The works included in this exhibition are a part of UH Manoa’s Hamilton Collections. An exhibition brochure will be produced on the occasion of the exhibition.
Gallery hours: Sun. – Fri. 12:00–4:00. Closed Sat. & holidays. Admission is free. Donations are appreciated. Parking fees may apply.
