Project proposal

My research goal in the US is to work with historical and contemporary sources related to Japanese-American families. From the early twentieth century, many Japanese emigrants have made their homes in the US. I hope to understand their experiences: what they have found in their new home, but also what they have lost. Representing their stories is a way of reminding my viewers of the resilience of human life, and of our responsibilities towards the task of living. Most of my time will be spent in New York; I have one-month research trips planned for Los Angeles as well. I chose New York as my professional base because of its diversity, a trait that Japan still lacks. In spite of the various social problems that arise in New York because of its density and diversity, the art scene still thrives, and ethnicity figures prominently in contemporary art. My professional contact in New York is Mr. Tim Okamura, a painter whose work explores the overlaps between race and street culture. In addition to acquainting myself with Mr. Okamura's work, I will also visit art museums, galleries, and artist open studios to get a broad understanding of the New York art scene. I hope to gain a better understanding of how contemporary art speaks to social concerns, and how popular culture informs current art practices.
