TRADES Artist in Residence program benefits visiting artists and people of Hawai‘i mutually and equally. We view sharing and exchange as fundamental modes of learning and community building. We forge connections. Beyond a residency’s usual provision of time and space, TRADES foregrounds place.

Analog Sunshine Recorders

May 2019
Honolulu, Oʻahu Hawaiʻi

Finally in May 2019, TRADES collaborated with Analog Sunshine Recorders and FLUX to adapt our temporary Nuʻuanu Street storefront into a working black and white dark room. Providing support and access to space, the collective was able to inhabit, develop and print their photographs that culminated in a group exhibition at Single Double.

Mahalo to Aja Toscano, Chris Rohrer, John Esguerra and Ara Laylo for their support of this project.
