Interisland Terminal Features Lecture, Show of Conceptual Contemproary Artist

Whitney-Worthy Artist Shows in Honolulu

The creative, forward-thinking folk at Interisland Terminal have announced a joint exhibition and lecture that melds various sectors of the University of Hawaii, including the School of Architecture. On Wednesday, October 6th at 6:00 p.m., internationally-exhibited conceptual artist Heather Rowe will give a free lecture on the crossroads of architecture, film and sculpture, followed by a month-long exhibit housed at UH’s Haigo and Irene Shen Architecture Gallery.


Rowe’s work ponders the boundaries (or lack thereof, depending on your mood) of archtectural interior treatments as imagined in cinematic works. Her use of lumber, metal, glass and mirrors nods to the construct of what we perceive as “structure”.

The exhibit remains through November 5, 2010.

Most recently, Rowe has exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Galerie Zink (Berlin), D’Amelio Terras and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (both in N.Y.); she holds an MFA from Columbia University’s School of the Arts.

Founded in 2009, Interisland Terminal’s mission is (their words) to “cultivate innovation and creative capital through ongoing exhibition and authentic experiences of contemporary art, film, and design, thus paving the way for the creative approaches needed to address the civic and social challenges facing Hawaii.”
