The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu

2411 Makiki Heights Drive
Honolulu, Hawaii 96822

The Contemporary Museum will present both an exhibition and a performance work by American artist Ernesto Pujol (born in Cuba, 1957), a conceptual artist and educator with an interdisciplinary art practice who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Pujol first became known during the 1990s for a series of site-specific installation projects that dealt with collective and individual memory. His more recent work has taken a political turn in addressing subjects such as war, ecological issues, loss, and mourning. Since 2006, Pujol has been exploring the notions of interiority and public and private spaces. He strives to reclaim public space from the noise and congestion to create silent spaces of solitude and seeks to awaken the consciousness of the viewer through the creation of such spaces.
