Hawaiʻi Triennial 2022 Exhibit at the State Art Museum @ Hawaii State Art Museum

About the Exhibit

This exhibit at the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum is on the second floor of the building, through December 3, 2022. Admission is free.

Hawaiʻi Triennial 2022 (HT22) is a citywide art exhibition of contemporary art installed across seven venues in Honolulu: Bishop Museum, Foster Botanical Garden, Hawaii Theatre Center, Hawai‘i State Art Museum (HiSAM), Iolani Palace, Honolulu Museum of Art, and Royal Hawaiian Center.

HiSAM is displaying an HT22 exhibition featuring Kānaka ʻŌiwi and Hawai‘i-based artist collaborations ‘Ai Pōkahu Press, ʻElepaio Press, Nā Maka o ka ʻĀina, Piliāmoʻo, and Tropic Editions. “The exhibition at HiSAM celebrates the particularities of this place and is indebted to the stories of art and activism that have unfolded across Ka Paeʻāina o Hawaiʻi since the 1970s—many of which remain under recognized to this day. It is no secret that ʻŌiwi artists have been historically underrepresented and misrepresented within the settler colonial exhibitionary complex of Hawaiʻi’s art institutions,” says Associate Curator Drew Kahu‘āina Broderick. “HT22 seeks to counter exclusionary practices that continue to impact the health and wellbeing of Hawaiʻi’s art ecosystems.”

The event is organized by Hawai‘i Contemporary, a Honolulu-based nonprofit organization, and made possible by presenting sponsors Hawai‘i State Art Museum (supported by State Foundation on Culture and the Arts), and Make Visible, a nonprofit whose mission is to create and sponsor innovative platforms for artists.

About the Exhibit

This exhibit at the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum is on the second floor of the building, through December 3, 2022. Admission is free.

Hawaiʻi Triennial 2022 (HT22) is a citywide art exhibition of contemporary art installed across seven venues in Honolulu: Bishop Museum, Foster Botanical Garden, Hawaii Theatre Center, Hawai‘i State Art Museum (HiSAM), Iolani Palace, Honolulu Museum of Art, and Royal Hawaiian Center.

HiSAM is displaying an HT22 exhibition featuring Kānaka ʻŌiwi and Hawai‘i-based artist collaborations ‘Ai Pōkahu Press, ʻElepaio Press, Nā Maka o ka ʻĀina, Piliāmoʻo, and Tropic Editions. “The exhibition at HiSAM celebrates the particularities of this place and is indebted to the stories of art and activism that have unfolded across Ka Paeʻāina o Hawaiʻi since the 1970s—many of which remain under recognized to this day. It is no secret that ʻŌiwi artists have been historically underrepresented and misrepresented within the settler colonial exhibitionary complex of Hawaiʻi’s art institutions,” says Associate Curator Drew Kahu‘āina Broderick. “HT22 seeks to counter exclusionary practices that continue to impact the health and wellbeing of Hawaiʻi’s art ecosystems.”

The event is organized by Hawai‘i Contemporary, a Honolulu-based nonprofit organization, and made possible by presenting sponsors Hawai‘i State Art Museum (supported by State Foundation on Culture and the Arts), and Make Visible, a nonprofit whose mission is to create and sponsor innovative platforms for artists.
