New Exhibitions At Hawaii State Museum: "Containment"
New Exhibit: “Containment”
“Containment” September – December 2021. This exhibit showcases artworks that explore containment through a variety of artistic depictions and approaches, ranging from traditional and nontraditional vessels, abstracted forms, and representations of architectural structures as containers for objects, as well as for individuals and their lives, through artworks from the SFCA’s Art in Public Places Collection.
About the Exhibit
“The word containment suggests a sense of physicality and an emphasis on structure. To contain implies keeping something within, setting limits or boundaries, and yet at the same time keeping other things out. These ideas apply to objects and humans, in addition to emotion and spirit. This exhibition showcases artworks that explore containment through a variety of artistic depictions and approaches, ranging from traditional and nontraditional vessels, abstracted forms, and representations of architectural structures as containers for objects, as well as for individuals and their lives.” – Elizabeth “Eli” Baxter, SFCA Art in Public Places Curator
