Artist Talk with Thad Higa and Minny Lee

Big Island

September 05, 2019:
Artist Talk with Thad Higa and Minny Lee. The Donkey Mill is pleased to welcome Hawaii Book artists Thad Higa and Minny Lee to discuss their current work and the curation of our current exhibition, REGENERATE! Book Arts in Hawaii. The Donkey Mill Art Center is proud to present REGENERATE! Book Arts in Hawaii. This exhibition surveys contemporary artist books in the Hawaiian Islands. Curated by Oahu-based book artists Minny Lee and Thad Higa, REGENERATE! focuses on the book as a document of change. In an era of transience and portability, artists approach books as one of the most malleable and dynamic vehicles of art. There are books from printmakers, concrete poets, dancers, musicians, photographers, graphic designers, and any artist seeking to regenerate their own form in printed matter. Books of our time range from narrative to non-narrative, abstract to didactic, encyclopedic to poetic. REGENERATE! also includes a reading area where visitors can spend time with a selection of works from the show. In coordination with the exhibition, artists talks and workshops will be held at the Donkey Mill for anyone interested in learning how to share their art, ideas, and passions in book form. We hope you will join us. donkeymillartcenter.org
