The Commons Gallery, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM), is pleased to present "Jon Moritsugu: Hyperrrrreality."

The Mānoa-based artist and film director will create an immersive environment, his first exhibition in Hawa 'i (more on this TBA).

Jon Moritsugu (b. 1965) is an American cult underground filmmaker. His movies are satiric, protopunk deconstructions of popular genres and formats; The New York Times describes them as "funny, anarchic, provocative and exhilarating.” His work deals with discrimination against Asian-Americans and the legacy of white supremacy in America. His films have shown in Sundance, Cannes, Berlin, Toronto, Rotterdam, Venice, New York Underground, Chicago Underground, MoMA, Guggenheim, Whitney and numerous other festivals and museums. He lives and works in Manoa. His book "Numbskull Revolution" is forthcoming in 2022.

Exhibition is viewable from outside.

Closed Fridays & Saturdays; Nov. 11, Veterans Day; Nov. 25 & 26, Thanksgiving & non-instructional day
