Art and Activism at the John Young Museum of Art

'Imaikalani Kalahele (b. 1946) is a Kānaka Maoli poet, artist, musician, and activist. Since the 1970s Kalahele has been practicing art and poetry as a way of documenting the changing landscapes around him and questioning the overdevelopment of Oahu. Cory Taum (b. 1990), initially began practicing art as a graffiti artist and later started working on community murals around Oahu. Over the course of several years, Kalahele and Taum have been working alongside one another, sharing studio space, and collaborating on exhibitions. In recognition of this mentoring relationship, they received the Moʻo Award from Nā Mea Hawaiʻi and PAʻI Foundation in 2014.
This program is conjunction with the current exhibition ULA LEO by ‘Imaikalani Kalahele and Cory Taum on view at the John Young Museum of Art until May 5.
