The Art Gallery, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM), is proud to present "Ken Okiishi: A Model Childhood." In this major exhibition, Okiishi meditates on the fraught legacy of Japanese-American history and the model minority myth in the larger contexts of American, global and continuously rewritten fragments of Asian-American history. The exhibition focuses on ruptures and paradigm shifts that destroy not only continuity in living one’s life, but the ability to think in coherent streams of thought, and conjectures that these modes of dis-formation are important central dis-organizing principles of writing American history. In "A Model Childhood," Okiishi approaches history through the lens of family and oral history, bringing both an intimacy and complexity to official narratives of the time period.
