When Caricature is Considered Portraiture

BY HEALOHA JOHNSTON
@ VOL 23 ON APR 10, 2015

Healoha Johnson is the Assistant Curator of the Arts of Hawai‘i at the Honolulu Museum of Art. Johnston holds a MA degree in Art History, and is completing a second MA degree in Pacific Island Studies, both from the University of Hawai‘i. Healoha’s presentation considers how caricatures often depict political events and high-profiled figures, and then remain as visual records with the potential to circulate misconceptions as truth through what is in fact a badly distorted caricature of the actual event or figure.
