Local photographer Riana Stellburg presents her debut solo photo exhibit, “Underground Celebrity” featuring the underrated cultivators of the Hawaii hip-hop scene at In4mation’s Human Imagination (1154 Nuuanu Ave.) on First Friday, May 3, 2013.
The exhibition will showcase ten subjects, all overlooked yet respected in the Hawaii hip-hop scene photographed by Stellburg. You may have seen them around but not necessarily seen in the spotlight. This photo exhibit is meant to bring light to these special individuals, hence the name ‘Underground Celebrity.’
These subjects have been perfecting their craft and cultivating Hawaii hip-hop for more than ten years whether it be through turntablism, emceeing, or even promoting shows. All the photos taken are from Stellburg’s perspective ever since she began taking photos in the underground Hawaii hip-hop scene.
The photos will feature the two of the following aspects of each subject: how they appear in public, a hobby that they do, and what work they do for full-time. The point is to reveal these behind the scene aspects of the ‘Underground Celebrity’ that not everyone knows about.
Underground Celebrity will be a continued work after the photo exhibit. Stellburg is planning to release in-depth video profiles of each subject throughout the year. The photos will be framed and hung on the wall. They will be available for purchase.
The subjects featured are Murder Mainstream featuring producer-DJ duo DJ Revise & Educated Guess, emcee Werdupstu of Audible Lab Rats, artist Spel Oner, DJ SSSolution of Nocturnal Sound Krew, DJ Packo, emcee Omega Cix of Monarx, DJ Bone of Got Rice Show, Kavet and Lofa of Lightsleepers, Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Entertainment Editor Jason Genegabaus, and DJ Jimmy Taco of Flip The Bird.
This will be the first photo exhibit documenting the Hawaii hip-hop scene. The opening reception will be from 6pm-9pm and the photo exhibit will be up to the end of May.
Tickets for the 2013 Wearable Art Show are now available for sale. Eight native Hawaiian designers—Hina, Kini Zamora, Maile Andrade, Manuheali`i, Marques Marzan, Lauwa`e, Puamana Crabbe, and Wahine Toa—will debut their original designs and creations on Wednesday, May 22 at the Hawai`i Theatre.
Enjoy an evening of art, fashion and entertainment as artists and cultural practitioners showcase both traditional and contemporary garments and jewelry. The show starts at 7:00 pm with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. Guests are encouraged to come early for the silent auction and stay late for a trunk show at The Venue following the Wearable Art Show. For tickets, call the Hawai`i Theatre Box Office at (808) 528-0506 or go online to www.hawaiitheatre.com.
The Wearable Art Show is part of the 8th Annual Maoli Arts Month (MAMo), a two-month long celebration showcasing over 52 native Hawaiian artists, designers, painters, weavers, photographers, carvers and more.
MAMo also recognizes mixed media artist, Maile Andrade, as the recipient of the 2013 MAMo Award for her skills as a native Hawaiian master artist.
“Maile Andrade has dedicated her life to perpetuating her artistic practice and sharing her love for art with the next generation,” said PA`I founder, Vicky Holt Takamine. “She has taken traditional Hawaiian designs and patterns as inspiration and applied it to her contemporary designs in fashion and jewelry and PA`I celebrates Maile on her many accomplishments.”
Presented by the PA`I Foundation and the Bishop Museum, the eighth annual MAMo is a broad community-based effort to celebrate the depth, breadth, and diversity of the Native Hawaiian arts community to create economic opportunities for Native Hawaiian artists and cultural practitioners. By increasing their presence in museums and galleries, awareness will increase as we bridge Native Hawaiian cultural principles and values about Native Hawaiian art within our community and beyond the shores of our ancestral home.
