“…titled Crossing Project, Another Country, the artists draw upon the history of migrant sugarcane laborers, who were introduced to Hawaiʻi from 1803. Many of the migrants were workers from China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines. Crossing Project is comprised of wooden boats, cardboard boxes and domestic items, recalling the everyday objects that migrants would have used in their journey.”

Art Radar lists Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan’s work as one of the highlights from the first Honolulu Biennial.
