Call + Response

At a time when connections between people and the elements are being rekindled on a measurable scale—think Maunakea and Hōkūleʻa and the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage—this exhibition encourages artists to call attention to urgent issues or to respond to the most pressing concerns of our time and place. Artists are encouraged to submit work that challenges established paradigms, asserts bold perspectives on current events, or seeks to make visible latent yet vital networks. Much like a call to action, this exhibition appreciates the critical roleartists play in shaping popular understanding of the world
