March 4 – May 4, 2018 / John Young Museum of Art
Artists participating in this exhibition deal with various aspects of the Hawaiian body extended. This can involve kino lau, the many physical forms taken by Hawaiian akua (deities) or ‘aumakua (family deities), but the concept applies to other metaphoric extensions of the collective Hawaiian “body” as well. Artists may address aspects of (reactions to) colonialism as well as the post/colonial Hawaiian body.
