A ‘Pow Wow’ is a Native American celebration of music and art. It’s a gathering of creative minds. Inspired by this ancient tradition, artists organize their own ‘Pow Wows’ – art and music events for local communities, on a global scale.
In February 2010, the first annual Pow Wow event took place in Hong Kong. Creatives were flown in from all over the world to promote creative pursuits in an urban jungle. Artists including Wu Yue, Jasper Wong, Will Barras, Pat Lee, and Jahan produced live art over two days, while DJs Verbal and Yoon masterfully provided us with musical inspiration.
The second annual Pow Wow will be held in Oahu, Hawaii in February, 2011. Following last year’s success, most of our original line-up are back on board, with some exceptional local and international additions. Our theme this year: the process of creating art. This year promises to be an explosive art event, with more artists, more music, and more reasons for you to Pow Wow.
A gathering of contemporary artists that engages with the broader community in the process and creation of art.
The weeks of setup for the POW WOW ’11 in Honolulu culminated in blowout showcase bringing together talent from different parts of the world. People all over Hawaii came to take part in the celebration where performance, photography, graffiti, and fine art intersected.
Artists such as Will Barras, Meggs, Ekundayo, Prime, Jeff Hamada, 123Klan, Aaron de la Cruz, Kamea Hadar, Suitman and Jasper Wong created unique indoor and outdoor site specific art for display at the giant Loft in Space venue behind Fresh Cafe.Read More
