Please RSVP for this event by Tuesday, November 19th here.

A native of Samoa, Shigeyuki Kihara is an interdisciplinary artist whose work examines the notions surrounding gender, history, and representation in post-colonial societies. Her solo exhibition, Shigeyuki Kihara: Living Photographs (2008-9), was the MET’s first exhibition of contemporary Samoan art. This Fall, Kihara is in residence at the International Studio and Curatorial Program.

Kihara will discuss a thriving contemporary urban movement amongst Maori and Pacific Islander communities from New Zealand. Mario A. Caro (NYU Draper Program) leads the conversation.
