«First Impressions: Paul Gauguin» (2018) written and directed by Yuki Kihara, is a 5-part episodic talk-show series capturing candid responses of a panel of Sāmoa’s fa’afafine community to select paintings by French artist Paul Gauguin some believed to feature Māhu—the Tahitian «third gender.»

«First Impressions: Paul Gauguin» was commissioned by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen presented in conjunction with the current exhibition «Gauguin: A Spiritual Journey» presented at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

Kihara will introduce and screen a 13-minute episode from the series as part of her presentation, followed by Q&A.

A native of Sāmoa, Yuki Kihara is an interdisciplinary artist whose work seeks to challenge dominant and singular historical narratives through visual arts, dance, and curatorial practice, engaging with Pacific colonial history and representation as they intersect with race, gender, spirituality, and sexual politics. Kihara’s works have been presented in a number of solo exhibitions, includiung at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2008); and several biennales including the recent Bangkok Art Biennale (2018). Her works can be found in collections at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the British Museum, among others. Kihara lives and works in Sāmoa.
