Making Waves

June 14, 2018 - February 3, 2019

Making Waves is the first of two exhibitions highlighting the important role of women artists in the museum’s contemporary collection. In this show, the works by international and Hawai‘i-based artists all have a relationship to water. Oceanscapes, waterfalls, sea creatures, and abstractions provide multiple interpretations of water—as a force (peaceful and destructive) of nature, a symbolic or mythological character, and as a subject for formal exploration.

Water plays a fundamental role in the life of all peoples, and its protection and conservation is especially relevant in Hawai‘i. The works in this exhibition may offer creative ways to think about how we interact with this essential liquid.

On view are photographs and video works by Linda Connor, Suda House, Kapulani Landgraf, Dana Teruya Len, Tracy Moffatt, Kenda North, Eve Sonneman, Bruna Stude, and Janica Yoder. Paintings, drawings, and prints include works by Jennifer Bartlett, Carol Bennett, April Gornik, Georgia O'Keeffe, Mari Sakamoto, and Pat Steir; and ceramic, wood, metal, and mixed media work by Jill Bonovitz, Diane Chen KW, Melinda Fawver, Komelia Hongja Okim, Susan Rothenberg, and Toshiko Takaezu.
