Works by Ai Weiwei and Liu Xiaodong included in Hawai'i Triennial
3 February 2022
Opening on 18 February, the Hawai'i Triennial 2022 (HT22) will be framed around the fluid concept of Pacific Century - E Ho‘omau no Moananuiākea, interweaving themes of history, place, and identity within the context of Hawaiʻi’s unique location at the confluence of Asia-Pacific and Oceania.
HT22’s 43 artists and collectives feature over 60 participants including internationally renowned cultural figures exhibiting alongside multiple generations of Hawai‘i-based artists, as well as others making their U.S. institutional debut. The Triennial is curated by curatorial director Dr. Melissa Chiu (director of the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden in Washington DC), in collaboration with associate curators Dr. Miwako Tezuka and Drew Kahu‘āina Broderick, and will take place over 11 weeks at Hawai'i Contemporary and other locations across Honolulu.
