Schedule of events
HUED: 2020 BFA EXHIBITION
April 26 – May 15, 2020 / The Art Gallery + Commons Gallery
An exhibition of original photographs by Francis Haar documenting the changes to ‘A‘ala, the neighborhood that is now Honolulu’s Chinatown, during the 1960s. The exhibition is curated by Gaye Chan.
Ka-Ning Fong has been making urban landscape paintings across the globe for over thirty years. This exhibition focuses on those he made within the past ten years in Honolulu’s Chinatown, the neighborhood of his painting studio. In them he emphasizes the dramatic changes in familiar sites, sometimes with near prophetic forecasting its imminent demise.
Spending Time is a demonstration of applied learning. Anderson displays the outcomes of three acts of prolonged observation, respectively of a window view, a young bonsai tree, and a coconut palm frond. Anderson’s durational drawing and video work look to gain a sense of the world through careful attention to pace and scale.
An opening made by splitting or cleaving, to burst open or split. Geologically, rift refers to a feature exposed through tearing the earth’s crust. Rift is an action which exposes the space between, and makes the hidden visible. Taylor’s exhibition is about transformation and metamorphosis. He is fascinated by the reorganization of material and form through process.
Myths & Mortality is an exposition of work created by seven artists working in the UHM Ceramics Area. The work as a whole addresses the ideas of transformation, hybridity, non-ordinary states of consciousness, remembrance, and death through evocative and vivid ceramic sculpture.
The annual Glass + Ceramic Holiday Sale features great holiday gifts! Check off your gift list and support the art students and the Department of Art + Art History.
