Hawaii Triennial ’22 (HT22) is a multi-site contemporary art exhibition of installations, performances and public programs at various venues in Honolulu, including the Bishop Museum, Foster Botanical Gardens, Honolulu Museum of Art, Hawaii State Art Museum, Hawaii Theatre, Iolani Palace and Royal Hawaiian Center.

PACIFIC CENTURY – E HO‘OMAU NO MOANANUIĀKEA  The Hawai‘i Triennial 2022 (HT22) will be framed around the fluid concept of Pacific Century - E Ho‘omau no Moananuiākea, interweaving themes of history, place, and identity within the context of Hawaiʻi’s unique location at the confluence of Asia-Pacific and Oceania.

The bamboo will be used for artwork by artist Leeroy New, noted for his spectacular outdoor sculptures such as the one shown here.  His installation will utilize the harvested bamboo along with upcycled plastics in the Economic Gardens of FBG.

Featured on the Upper Terrace will be the work of artist Ai Weiwei. The presence of Weiwei’s three large-scale artworks comment on environmental issues and histories of earthworks and land art, while offering visitors with a high-impact experience in a contemplative setting.

The third installation at FBG is the artist collective TOQA with their Extreme Sport Resort, an immersive installation experience that merges a bespoke collection of sustainably-created fashion with a film featuring the collection’s pieces in action. The work is experienced in a two-part installation sited in and responsive to FBG Orchid Conservatory and Gift Shop.
