Opening Reception: Friday, April 7, 4-7 p.m.
The exhibit features the work of Oʻahu based visual artists who are all connected in some way. It is an exhibition, which considers our seemingly immediate and innate ability to connect with others without reason or understanding of how such a sensation is generated. It’s happened to everyone: you meet someone for the first time and feel like you already know them. How is this possible? Treating the gallery as a kind of laboratory for experimentation—artists were invited to create tactile works in response to the show’s theme, to explore the mysteries of human to human connectivity. Touching, hearing, and looking closely are all encouraged, but not required. The audience is invited to become part of the experiment, part of the overall installation—given the choice to touch, to look, to know: will you?
