Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU,

Her solo exhibition, Shigeyuki Kihara: Living Photographs (2008-9), was the MET’s first exhibition of contemporary Samoan art. This Fall, Kihara is in residence at the International Studio and Curatorial Program.
Kihara will discuss a thriving contemporary urban movement amongst Maori and Pacific Islander communities from New Zealand.

Chief Dwaine C. Perry (Ramapough Lenape Nation) provides a special welcome and Mario A. Caro (NYU Draper Program) leads the conversation.
