About this Event

DISplace shines light on the widely unknown connection between Hawai‘i, the Pacific Northwest, and the communities that continue to flow between these two regions.

In keeping with the museum’s approach of providing a platform for culturally embedded storytelling, Guest Curators Lehuauakea (they/them) and Kanani Miyamoto (she/her) are themselves a part of this living history: both are mixed-Native Hawaiian, have family roots in Hawaiʻi and are now based in Portland, OR. Miyamoto and Lehuauakea have created a multi-faceted online exhibition that combines deep historical research with contemporary artworks and personal stories sourced directly from today’s regional communities.

During this Curator’s Talk on December 4, 2020 at 6 pm PST, take a virtual tour with the guest curator duo. Miyamoto and Lehuauakea will walk you through the exhibition, sharing their process and behind-the-scenes stories.


DISplace is sponsored by 808Grinds and Native Arts and Cultures Foundation, with additional funding from The Collins Foundation & the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation.
