From 2008-2014, I directed Intersections, the Visiting Artist and Scholar Program for the University of Hawai'i Art Department.
Intersections promotes Hawai’i as a global center for the exchange of contemporary visual arts. Our emphasis is on the visual arts as creative research that enables community participation and dialog. We ask our invited artists to explore the relevance of artistic practice to inspire critical thinking and broaden perspectives on contemporary cultural issues. We believe that art is not only something to be seen, not only a topic or issue to be discussed, but also a culture and community to be realized through participation, cooperation, and active representation.
