COVID-19 Community Heroes: Taiji Terasaki and Kristin Fukushima

  • en
Conference/Presentation

Jun 202020
2:00p.m. - 3:00p.m.


Artist Taiji Terasaki will join us from his studio in Hawai‘i to discuss his latest project, Transcendients: COVID-19 Community Heroes, in which he is highlighting unsung heroes who are working tirelessly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Kristin Fukushima, Managing Director of the Little Tokyo Community Council, will be participating in the program from Los Angeles’s Little Tokyo. 

Fukushima helped found Community Feeding Community, an initiative to purchase meals from Little Tokyo restaurants and distribute them to workers in Little Tokyo impacted by COVID-19. She was highlighted in Terasaki’s project alongside James Choi and Nancy Yap, co-founders of Community Feeding Community. This program will explore what being a “hero” means in times of crisis and what we can do to support and uplift our heroes.

Taiji Terasaki is the artist behind our most recent exhibition, Transcendients: Heroes at Borders, that looks at the consequences of prejudice, fear, and misuse of power and the “heroes” who confront and challenge borders, both visible and invisible. Visit janm.org/transcendients to learn more about the exhibition.
