Phoebe Cummings

UH Art Gallery, UH Mānoa Campus
February 24 – April 5
(opening reception on Sunday, February 24 from 3:00 – 5:00pm)

Phoebe CummingsWorking predominantly from unfired clay, Phoebe Cummings constructs pieces directly on site as temporary installations or interventions within a place. Both material and process are of particular significance to Cummings; her intensive labor of making is heightened by the ephemerality of the work’s existence. Often the pieces come to exist only as a photograph or memory. Cummings will be developing a site-specific installation in the UH Art Gallery.

Gallery hours

Monday–Friday 10:30–5:00pm; Sunday 12:00–5:00pm. Closed holidays and Saturdays.

Ticket Information

Free admission. Parking fees may apply.
