    Does art by millennials differ from the art that has come before them?  That’s the unspoken question behind an exhibition at WCC’s Gallery ‘Iolani that features a dozen artists born between 1976 and 1991.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa spoke with one of the curators.

It's just fun to think, what are the characteristics of this millennial tribe, what are they drawn to?  Beyond that, what modes of depiction feel accurate now?  

“Into View: an exhibition of narcissists” continues at WCC’s Gallery ‘Iolanithrough February 27th.

Noe Tanigawa covered art, culture and ideas for two decades at Hawaiʻi Public Radio.
