Artist John Vea is in conversation at Nā Mea Hawai‘i
Join us for an insightful talk with artist John Vea, facilitated by curator Ngahiraka Mason. Working with sculpture, video, and performance, John Vea’s practice is founded in the process of talanoa, which he describes as “a personal encounter with another person in conversation.” Vea’s artwork takes talanoa from everyday interactions, news coverage, and research, giving voice and visibility to unseen realities and social issues that affect Pacific communities. Based in Auckland (Aotearoa, New Zealand), Vea is an artist-in-residence for Honolulu Biennial 2017.
