Artist Talk at Honolulu Biennial The Hub Main Stage: Wahi Pana-A Sense of Place

There will be a free panel discussion on March 11 from 4 to 6pm at the Hub Main Stage at the Ward Center at 1200 Ala Moana Blvd. It is free, but you need to register because of limited seating. Take a friend to listen to the lively and thought provoking discussion.

The Honolulu Biennial is focusing on the theme of Make Wrong Right Now and exploring themes of place, belonging and identity in a biennial that covers Oceania and touches Asia, The Americas and Australia and New Zealand. As part of their programming featuring 47 artists, they are also offering a public forum by and for the local community.

AHA (Association of Hawaii Artists) is Hawai’i’s oldest arts organisation founded to support artists and be a meeting point for art lovers through art exhibitions and education. Wahi Pana: A Sense of Place is a concept I wrote a proposal for a show where we, as artists could learn the mo’olelo or story about a particular location, then go out as a group to selected sites and create something in response to our knowledge of the history of the place as well as our intuitive reaction to the location.
