Hawaiʻi State Art Museum Re-opens Monday, July 13, with new exhibit
The Hawaiʻi State Art Museum (HiSAM) will re-open to the public on Monday, July 13, with a new exhibit, "Mai hoʻohuli i ka lima i luna". This exhibition, curated by guest curators Drew Broderick, Kaʻili Chun and Kapulani Landgraf, will spread out across HiSAM over the course of a year, occupying different spaces at different times—a wall display case, gift shop, café, and sculpture garden on the first floor, and a sculpture lobby and multiple gallery rooms on the second floor. The curatorial response varies with each space as do the artworks. In certain moments the exhibition is conventional, in others experimental: mapping interpersonal relations within a group of artists, paying attention to materials and techniques, recognizing struggles of the past, dwelling with kaona in the present, and facing indigenous futures already in the making.

For over a half a century now, the Art in Public Places Collection of the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts has been recognized as one of the most significant collections of late twentieth and early twenty-first century art in Hawai‘i. The collection enhance
