Exhibition Overview

Pu‘uhonua Society presents the fourth annual CONTACT exhibition titled 3017: Hawai‘i in a Thousand Years.

CONTACT 3017 asks artists to take on the role of futurologists, dwelling in predictions and prophecies. Artist were asked to forecast the unknown, to imagine and hypothesize possible and probable (or impossible and improbable) futures in Hawai‘i and investigate the worldviews, ideologies, and myths that support them. Climate change and rising/falling sea levels, nationalism and decentralization of power, globalization and resource distribution, are just some of the many issues we face locally and globally.

This year's juror is the art collective Paradise Cove

This exhibition is supported by Pu‘uhonua Society, Nā Mea Hawai‘i, and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.

Coming soon: Public programming schedule
