#var:page_name# cover

CONTACT Hawaii and the Surfjack Hotel present a free two day pop-up interactive contemporary art project in five penthouse suites at the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club. Like nothing that has yet been done in a hotel in Hawaiʻi, over 18 artists will transform the penthouse suites and various spaces throughout the hotel into immersive funhouses and spaces of culture and color. Exploring important community issues in playful ways, Reimagining Waikīkī situates itself at the meeting ground between meaningful messages and spectacular experiences.

Free & open to the public
Presented by the Surfjack Hotel, and in collaboration with Native Books/ Na Mea Hawaii and Contact Hawaii 2018

Music by: Carlos Niño (LA)
