An oft-discussed issue within the Hawai‘i art world is the lack of dialogue—among artists, between the art scene and other scenes, among museums and the public…it’s a long list. So the Honolulu Museum of Art, Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities, and Hawai‘i Public Radio have teamed up to create some dialogue, through a round-table discussion that is open to the public on March 22.
This art talk is the first in a series HPR plans to host, and the evening’s topic is “Injustice Against the Land.” At the table will be Lebanese artist Reem Bassous, whose powerful exhibition Beyond the Archive: Paintings by Reem Bassous is on view at the museum through March 27; Hawaiian artist Kapulani Landgraf, whose installation Ponoiwi brought museum visitors to tears in 2013; and University of Hawai‘i–Mānoa English professor Cynthia Franklin. Our arts of Hawai‘i curator Healoha Johnston, who curated Beyond the Archive, and HPRʻs arts and culture reporter Noe Tanigawa will moderate the round-table session.
Seating is limited to 75, so don’t wait to reserve a free spot for what is sure to be a lively discussion.
