BINDING & LOOPING : TRANSFER OF PRESENCE IN CONTEMPORARY PACIFIC ART
October 5 – December 5, 2014
The Art GalleryBinding and Looping: Transfer of Presence in Contemporary Pacific Art brings together artists from Hawai‘i and the Pacific for whom fiber and concepts of binding are both a respected tradition and an inspiration for contemporary art. In their individual ways, these artists consider their indigenous binding and looping customs and at the same time incorporate different media to create new works in sculpture, printmaking, photography, painting, and video. The exhibition includes work by artists from Hawai‘i, Tonga, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea, and Micronesia. Dr. Deborah Waite, professor of Pacific art history at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, is the curator.

The artists include: Bernice Akamine, Maile Andrade, Kaili Chun, Brett Graham, Patsy Herman, Angelina Jilak, Florence Jaukae, Noelle Kahanu, Cathy Kata, Maria Kenda, Kapulani Landgraf, Marques Marzan, Moana Nepia, Ani O’Neill, Su‘a Sulu‘ape Petelo Alaiva‘a, Lisa Reihana, Filipe Tohi, Maika‘i Tubbs, Michel Tuffery, Sheyne Tuffery, Christina Wirihana.
