Summary: From 2014–2019, the annual exhibition CONTACT was a fixture in the contemporary art scene in Hawai‘i. From its arrival in 2014, to the most-recent Acts of Faith at the Hawaiian Mission Houses in 2019, CONTACT has become the most comprehensive, thematic exhibition of contemporary art made in Hawai‘i by Hawai‘i artists. The show has been thoughtfully curated by individuals in/out of our root culture, to deepen the dynamic of contact and to widen our understanding of our lived experiences here.

Pu’uhonua Society and Tropic Editions are pleased to present CONTACT 2014–2019, a retrospective catalogue featuring a selection of essays, statements, artworks, and ephemera from the CONTACT exhibition series. Edited by co-founders Drew Broderick and Maile Meyer, as well as Josh Tengan and Marika Emi, this publication serves as document, archive, and celebration of Hawai‘i’s rich, ongoing cultural and creative legacy.
