Lauren Hana Chai: The Five Senses
Known for contrasting her traditional Korean upbringing with modern American life, Hawai'i-based painter and ceramicist Lauren Hana Chai (b. 1991) includes a personal story or cultural narrative within each work of art. Her current series juxtaposes traditional elements such as Korean folk art and Buddhist temple architecture, with reflections on modern society and contemporary identity. This exhibition continues the museum's commitment to presenting work by contemporary Hawai'i artists.
