Kahilu Exhibits Seeks Submissions for Juried ExhibitionFebruary 14, 2018, 9:27 AM HST (Updated February 14, 2018, 9:30 AM)
Kahilu Exhibits is seeking statewide submissions for its Annual Kahilu Juried Exhibition entitled, INTERSECTIONS: Considering Imbalance.
Artists residing in Hawai‘i are asked to enter work that responds to the title of the exhibit.
“The theme of the juried show was developed by the Kahilu exhibition committee comprised of staff, board members and professional artists,” said Kahilu Exhibits Coordinator Sally Lundburg. “In a world that seems increasingly polarized, we often find ourselves at metaphorical intersections where a range of forces—cultural, political, economic, emotional—converge. Achieving individual or collective balance when these forces meet and mix may first require disturbances or expressions of resistance. Artists often take a significant role in public discourse when their work is driven by these intersections. In this exhibition, we invite artists to examine the idea of an intersection as not simply where two or more lines meet—a site that you approach, choose a direction, and then continue on—but as a starting place to consider the imbalance of the status quo.”
The exhibition juror will be Andi Campognone, who has over 25 years of arts experience as a curator, administrator and maker. Campognone is the current museum manager/curator for the Museum of Art and History in the City of Lancaster, California. She is also an active member of the Holualoa Foundation for Arts and Culture, where she leads an annual artist professional development workshop at Donkey Mill Art Center. She volunteers as a regular speaker and mentor to art students at both the undergraduate and graduate level and is on the advisory boards of Start Up Art Fair, Los Angeles Arts Association and the State of Hawai‘i’s Public Art Program Panel.
All media will be considered and cash prizes will be awarded to the first-, second- and third-place winners.
The deadline to submit entries for the exhibition is April 22, 2018, and applications are being accepted through www.CAFE.org.
The Juried Exhibition will run from May 10 through June 30, 2018.
An opening reception and artists’ walkthrough will be held on Thursday, May 10, from 5 to 7 p.m., and a no-host bar and light pūpū will be on offer.
