The Volcano Art Center announces the provocative Art & Anarchy exhibit, currently on display at the Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village, will be extended one extra weekend.
The exhibit, sponsored by The University of Hawaii at Hilo Departments of Philosophy and Art and in conjunction with the Pacific Association for the Continental Tradition philosophy conference, focuses on the theme of anarchy. The exhibit will be on display through Sunday at the Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus located at 19-4074 Old Volcano Road. The exhibit will also be featured online at www.volcanoartcenter.org.
It features artists from the U.S. mainland and Hawaii Island.
Since its origins in 19th century Paris, anarchism has influenced the visual arts in diverse ways and continues to do so as demonstrated by this collection of one-of-a-kind works which provide visual and intellectual stimulation on the subject.
The mixed media exhibition features original paintings, prints, sculptures, and ceramics by both professional, amateur and student artists who continue to investigate the same issues that motivated the original anarchist movement and in many ways are even more critical today. The exhibit can be viewed in Dietrich Varez Hall in the Hale Ho‘omana building at VAC’s Niaulani Campus. VAC is currently following all CDC guidelines and social distancing protocol. Be prepared to wear a mask and keep a safe 6-foot distance from others within the gallery.
