Sung Hwan Kim & David Michael DiGregorio
Honolulu, Oʻahu Hawaiʻi
This coming Thursday, we are proud to present a screening with current (and extended) Artist in Residence, Sung Hwan Kim and his collaborative partner David Michael DiGregorio. Please join us to view his 2012 piece, Temper Clay followed by a conversation with the artists; Thursday January 30th from 10:30 – 11:45 a.m. in ART 101 at UH Mānoa. Many thanks to Jaimey Hamilton Faris and UH Mānoa Art and Art History for partnering on this event.
Sung Hwan and David arrived in Honolulu last September 2019, with plans for an extended residency to develop a project for a future biennial. After spending 2 months living with TRADES they found their own place in town. Over this time they have developed prolonged interactions with various communities including studying ʻŌlelo Hawai’i with Kīpuka at Nā Mea Hawai‘i, hula with Halau o kahiwahiwa, and ʻukulele with the Daughters of Hawai‘i at Queen Emma Summer Palace. They have become integrated members of our arts communities and plan to remain on O‘ahu until at least June 2020. We look forward to providing further points of access to our communities as their project takes shape.
