Pu’uhonua Society is pleased to announce the selection of PARADISE COVE as the creative team of the fourth-annual CONTACT exhibition at the Honolulu Museum of Art School, on view March 31 - April 17, 2017.
PARADISE COVE is a Hawaiʻi based collective presenting site-specific installations and art-related events. Taking its name from Paradise Cove Luau, a "must do" activity among visitors to the islands, PARADISE COVE is dedicated to facilitating temporary experiences that encourage viewers and participants to think critically about Hawaii. Particular emphasis is placed on engaging with consumer activities such as shopping, partying, and acquiring art both online and IRL. For more info visit, www.paradisecove.biz.
The theme for the upcoming exhibition is CONTACT 3017, which asks artists to consider Hawaiʻi a thousand years from now. Artists are encouraged to become forecasters who postulate possible (or impossible) futures, and to investigate the world views, ideologies, and myths that support them.
Participation in CONTACT is open to all of Hawai’iʻs contemporary artists. The official Call for Artists and Proposals will be released in coming weeks.
