Binding and Looping: Transfer of Presence in Contemporary Pacific Artbrings together artists from Hawai‘i and the Pacific for whom fiber and concepts of binding are both a respected tradition and an inspiration for contemporary art. In their individual ways, these artists consider their indigenous binding and looping customs and at the same time incorporate different media to create new works in sculpture, printmaking, photography, painting, and video. The exhibition includes work by artists from Hawai‘i, Tonga, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea, and Micronesia. Dr.Deborah Waite, professor of Pacific art history at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, is the curator.

E-Waste: An exhibition by Katherine Behar at the Tuska Center for Contemporary Art, University of Kentucky

“E-Waste” is an exhibition of new sculptures and videos. Combining machine-made, handmade, and organic forms, including a  “fossilized” 3D printer, the installation offers a mediation onconsumer technology’s environmental impact,  digital labor’s perverse acceleration, and big data’s corporeality.

“E-Waste” is co-produced by the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Fine Arts in collaboration with CELT (Center for the Enhancement of Learning & Teaching) at the University of Kentucky, and is supported in part by a PSC-CUNY Award, jointly funded by The Professional Staff Congress and The City University of New York.
