November 1, 2022 - December 31, 2022

detail from artwork by Amber Khan

Aupuni Space and The Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts are pleased to present an exhibition of works by Amber Khan entitled Recollecting Poi, Pikake and Paniolos, comprised of 3 large scale sculptures highlighting facets of Hawai‘i’s past, present and potential. Khan employs imagery from the natural world of Hawaiʻi with unique cultural references in a delightfully playful manner. She utilizes paper mâché, wood, fiber, paint and found natural objects to materialize these concepts.

The sculptures are on view in the lobby, first floor reading room, and Language, Literature, and History Section of the Hawai‘i State Library through the end of December 2022.

This project is made possible through the generous co-sponsorship of Creative City.
