Ula Leo is a collection of work by ‘Imaikalani Kalahele (Hawai‘i-based artist and poet) and Cory Taum (Hawai‘i-based artist) that considers the relationship between urban development, environmental degradation, cultural memory, and resistance. This multi-generational exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, poetry, and artist videos addressing specific sites, spaces, and landscapes of O‘ahu and illustrating stories from a Hawaiian perspective.
This exhibition and its related events are part of UHM Art: Critical Geography in Hawai‘i Series that highlights local and international artists who address social-cultural concerns associated with space, place, and environment in O‘ahu. Programs consider diverse approaches by artists including mapping and map-making and visual story-telling.
