Contemporary Art Tells A Story: Hawai'i

Art can tell us a great deal about a culture. For example, the culture of Hawai'i - a current National Museum of the American Indian multi-site exhibit - highlights some of Hawai‘i’s most dynamic contemporary artists.

New and experimental works of art explore what it means to be “Hawaiian” in the 21st century. Featured artists include Maika‘i Tubbs, Solomon Enos, Carl Pao, and Puni Kukahiko. This IS Hawai‘i is presented in tandem with the museum’s annual Hawai‘i Festival.

I'm going to be in Washington D.C. (Smithsonian) in a few weeks and am going to check out the show.

Would love to hear from anyone else who might also see the show.

  1. This exhibit sounds fascinating. I know Hawaiian culture has changed over the course of history so it would be interesting to see what what being "Hawaiian" means in the 21st century.
