For the third year, Pu‘uhonua Society’s Maoli Arts Alliance is presenting its juried contemporary art exhibition “Contact 2016.” The exhibition features new and recent artworks by Hawaii’s contemporary artists, and is the only show of its kind in the islands.
Selected artworks explore themes of “Contact,” cultural exchange and migratory movements, many of them reflecting on personal narratives of heritage and connection. This year’s show is titled “Foreign and Familiar.”
Jurors are expected to select work by over 80 submissions in a wide variety of media from over 50 artists for the exhibition. On view at the Honolulu Museum of Art School from March 24 to April 17, 2016, “Contact 2016” also includes a series of free programs, including lectures, panel discussions, and films, designed to complement the show.
