Tomie Arai

[February 21, 2014]

6PM to 8PM

25 West 43rd Street, Room 1000
between 5th & 6th Avenues, Manhattan

 

 

Visual artist Tomie Arai will shares her thoughts and observations about art, activism, and the Asian American movement in a dialogue with poet and editor Russell Leong. Tomie will discuss the process of being an artist, creating a new visual vocabulary in the emerging Asian American art scene in New York City.

  • What were the differences between creating art then, and being an artist now?

  • What is the relationship of memory and collective consciousness?

  • What is the process of being socially committed to certain ideas, and also committed to art-making?

  • How has the artist's techniques and range developed during four decades of creating visual images and helping to form what is now considered part of the iconography of Asian American art?

Join this informal conversation with one of Asian America's stellar "image-makers!" Tomie will introduce rare images of her work created over the past four decades.
