Shangri La is excited to announce 8×8: Source will be opening January 13, 2024! This fourth installment of 8×8 brings together eight visual artists and eight performing artists living in Hawaiʻi to create new work inspired by their encounters with Shangri La. Sparking a generative force to this year’s exhibition, the theme “source,” has been interpreted by these sixteen artists to produce commentaries on topics ranging from sustainability and ancestry to rising and return.
This year’s lineup of incredible artists include: Sean-Joseph Takeo Kahāokalani Choo, Kamakakēhau Fernandez, Paula Fuga, Noah Harders, Nick Kurosawa, Lehuauakea, Kenny WaiFu Lui, Punahele, Noʻu Revilla, Abigail Romanchak, Amelia Samari, Michelle Schwengel-Regala, David Shepard, Laritza Labouche (T.J. Keanu Tario), Maika’i Tubbs, and I Made Widana.
8×8: Source will be open from January 13, 2024-June 1, 2024.
