Hawaiian Storytelling

Unfortunately this talk has had to be postponed. We are hoping to reschedule it for the New Year and will announce the new date when confirmed.

Research Curator Marenka Thompson-Odlum talks about new art works specially commissioned by the Museum from Hawaiian artist Solomon Enos. Inspired by Hawaiian objects in the collections, Enos re-energises the artefacts to explore Hawaiian culture using characters from the epic myth Hiʻiakaikapoliopele. Highlighting the Hawaiian tradition of mo'olelo, a way of storing and sharing Hawaiian cultural memory that guides future generations in understanding the world, Marenka looks afresh at cultural forms through a Hawaiian lens.

Everyone welcome. Doors open at 18.00 and refreshments will be served. Talk starts at 18.30.
