Exhibition to begin on July 11th to September 6th, 2015.
The exhibition incorporates paintings by Laura Kina and photographs by Emily Hanako Momohara. The work examines the worker migration and the settlement from the island of Okinawa to the island of Hawaii. It was brought about by the latter's sugar plantations and the pineapple farms during the late 19th and 20th centuries. Both bodies of work are grounded in each artist's individual journey to uncover family history. Both examine the complex and collective and individual identities.
