One of my current initiatives in the classroom is to teach my students how to talk story with other generations of artists in Hawaii and to document and archive important exhibitions and arts events. We are slowly creating a dedicated archive of oral histories of Hawaii’s contemporary artists as well as an archive of recent visual arts culture.
Hawaii is one of the richest and most exemplary sites from which to view the globalization of the art world and culture industry. The consequences of colonization, militarization, and touristification, and urbanification have made this Pacific island chain a nexus of materials, peoples, and cultural histories flowing on local, regional and global scales.
The interviews explore all angles of the historical effects of globalization as they move from discussions of Masami Teraoka's appropriated ukiyo-e prints; to Paul Pfeiffer's haunting video clips of queen bees fighting for control of the colony; to the use of customary basket weaving techniques and mixed-media installation in the work of Maile Andrade; to the radical commoning practices of Eating in Public.
Art world “centers” can learn much from Hawaii's art scene, especially as the world begins to understand that the earth itself is a very isolated island with limited space and resources.
This is an ongoing project. If you would like more information, please contact me.
