Hawai'i Contemporary Art Summit

10-13 February 2021

The inaugural Hawaiʻi Contemporary Art Summit 2021 is a multi-day event that brings together renowned keynote speakers, artists, curators, and thinkers from Hawai‘i and around the world for educational programming focused on art and ideas. A thematic precursor to the Hawai‘i Triennial 2022 (HT22), Art Summit 2021 is a series of insightful and compelling talks, performances, film screenings, and workshops that situates Hawai‘i at the center of high-caliber, global discourse around contemporary art and ideas to local and international audiences.

This multi-day event will premiere online and will be available to registered viewers for on-demand viewing. A full schedule for Art Summit 2021 will be released in January 2021.
