Mānoa Campus, Art Building, University of Hawai'i Art Gallery

The University of Hawai‘i Art Gallery is pleased to join the distinguished, international group of art spaces presenting "FAX," an evolving exhibition that started in New York City in 2009. Curated by João Ribas, and co-organized by The Drawing Center, New York and Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, "FAX" invites artists, architects, designers, scientists, and filmmakers to think of the fax machine as a drawing tool. The result is an exhibition concerned with ideas of reproduction, obsolescence, distribution, and mediation. Through the infinitely reproducible, yet erratic outcomes of producing works via the fax machine, this show displaces traditional notions of the hand that are still commonly associated with the medium of drawing, and instead foregrounds drawing as a generative process.

The first iteration of the exhibition featured a core of works by nearly 100 artists, including seminal examples of early telecommunications art. With every new incarnation, hosting institutions are encouraged to invite additional artists to submit works, which are then permanently added to the show. The UH Art Gallery has invited ten Hawai‘i artists to contribute works to the exhibition; those works will be submitted via a live fax machine in the gallery throughout the run of the exhibition. The artists are: Harrell Fletcher and students from the Department of Art and Art History, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa; Sanit Khewhok; Kloe Kang; Barbara Pope; Analog Sunshine Recorders; Gordon Sasaki; Bundit Kanisthakhon; Dorothy Faison; Peter Vincent Studio Architects; and Scoop Brancisco.
