Molokai Window

2018

“Social practice artist James Jack has been working closely with diverse community partners to gather stories pertaining to ‘āina (land) on Moloka‘i. This installation focuses on land not as a commodity to be bought and sold, but on the visceral relationship between Molokaʻi’s people and land. This long process has revealed that while the people of Molokaʻi may have different priorities, they all see the island’s potential tied to the land.”

—Healoha Johnston, curator
