Creative Modern Activism, in conjunction with the Hawaii installment of Still Present Pasts: Korean Americans and the ‘Forgotten War,’ is presenting a juried exhibition at the Bishop Museum on peace, justice and the heritage of non-violent resistance. “If Not Now When” commemorates the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean War and centers on the ability of art to function as an agent for peace, chance and resistance.
Especially now more than ever, a commentary of peace is needed. Recently a South Korean warship exploded and sank, killing 46 South Korean sailors. Fingers are being pointed North and at a torpedo attack from outside the vessel, further exacerbating the tense situation.
