Artist Performance: Shigeyuki Kihara @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts

Artist Performance: Shigeyuki Kihara @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts

“salt 8″ featured artist Shigeyuki Kihara will perform her iconic solo dance, which draws on the classical Samoan taualuga to retell the cultural legacy of colonialism in Samoa from an indigenous perspective. Kihara is a prominent artist born in Samoa and based in New Zealand; her work investigates the complexities of cultural identity, colonialism, representation, gender roles, and spirituality through performance, photography, and video. Kihara’s work is featured in the salt gallery, as well as inserted into the UMFA’s Pacific Island galleries in the Dolores Doré Eccles and Frank Sanguinetti Exhibition Wing—a photographic intervention meant to stimulate dialogue among the objects.
