Transpacific Borderlands Artist Profiles

Licensing

Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo examines the experiences of artists of Japanese ancestry born, raised, or living in either Latin America or predominantly Latin American neighborhoods of Southern California. In this series of short videos, artists featured in the exhibition discuss their work, their backgrounds, and their identities as Nikkei in Latin America and Southern California. A new artist profile will be added every week, so check back for more videos!
