Global Uprisings: Indigeneity, Land, Heritage // Hawai'i & Palestine

November 15, 2020 - November 15, 2020
How do cultivation, contractors, culture, and cosmopolitics relate to land rights struggles in Palestine and Hawaiʻi? This panel will reflect on growing ecological crises, displacement from land, and alienation from heritage through potential strategies or antidotes presented by education and cultural projects that bridge art, science, and agriculture. Through the practice of two working artists and two academics we will think through linkages of land, lineage, and laws.

His films, installations, and sculptures often transform ordinary objects or actions into sensory experiences that reveal the hidden complexity of relationships trapped within the mundane.
