Join us for a free half-day forum during which John Pule will address his art making and poetry of the past decade. Guest speakers for the symposium include Jonathan Mane-Wheoki, Shane Cotton, Manulani Aluli Meyer, Manu Suganuma and Shane Edwards.
This symposium is titled for the abundance of other worlds found in John Pule's paintings, some of which are in the exhibition John Pule: Hauaga (Arrivals). Large canvases depict series of ominous worlds resting among floating clouds. Pule's paintings are populated with detailed flora, people and animals interacting with the environment and with each other in a formless land, ocean and skyscape.
