He Alo A He Alo: Face to Face, Conversations with The Ancestors
With Maile Andrade and Marques Hanalei Marzan
Maile Andrade, multi-media artist, professor at Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, and SAR’s 2012 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native artist fellow, joins Marques Hanalei Marzan, Hawaiian fiber artist and cultural advisor for Bishop Museum in Honolulu, Hawai’i for an open dialogue on the relevance and the changing world of indigenous visual art practices for contemporary Native Hawaiian artists. Art plays a key role in promoting cultural values and understanding for this and future generations. While they began as teacher and student, Andrade and Marzan continue to explore these issues as fellow artists and cultural educators.
“Come join us for this provocative conversation looking at ourselves as being the ancestors of tomorrow.” – Maile Andrade

This lecture is the second event in this year’s Indian Arts Reseach Center Speaker Series.
The School for Advanced Research’s Indian Arts Research Center presents a series of conversation-style presentations exploring today’s world of cultural preservation. Museums, artists, and communities are increasingly recognizing the need to elevate indigenous voices in the public’s understanding of traditional and evolving Native arts and culture. This year’s Speaker Series takes us on a journey beyond the Pueblo communities within which we are situated, to shed light on the many remarkable ways indigenous-based cultural preservation, promotion, and revival are happening nationally. Through the intimate conversations, this series celebrates and acknowledges the powerful work happening all around us. From indigenous language revitalization efforts, centuries old traditions in Alaska’s Alutiiq communities, or a changing contemporary art scene in Hawai’i, “Rise” asks how indigenous communities are coming together to ensure that their respective histories, arts, and cultures, are represented with respect and are able thrive and grow for future generations.
