The School for Advanced Research welcomes multimedia artist Maile Andrade as the 2012 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native Artist Fellow. Hawaiian native Andrade lives in Hilo, has a very full schedule as a professor of art at the University of Hawai’i, and still finds the time to put on several art exhibitions of her own work every year.
Maile Andrade’s work reflects and is rooted in a native Hawaiian worldview. She creates traditional and contemporary arts using a wide range of media to develop innovative new techniques, materials, and themes. Also an accomplished weaver, Andrade studied with master weaver Elizabeth Lee in 1989, and often incorporates the fiber arts into her work. While at SAR, she plans to work with several media such as fiber arts, glass, and metal.
Professor Andrade is an accomplished artist, educator, and researcher. Her work has been featured in exhibitions all over the world including the Bishop Museum in Honolulu; the Toimairangi Gallery in Hastings, New Zealand; the Museum of Design in New York; and the IAIA in Santa Fe. In addition, she lectures internationally on her art as well as on Hawaiian and artist issues.
Andrade received her BA from the University of Hawai’i at Hilo and MFA from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. She will be in residence from March 1–May 31, 2012.
