Spotlight on Contemporary Japanese-American Artists
Join us for our March General Meeting on Tuesday, March 28th at 7pm.
Curator Kimi Kitada, currently at Charlotte Street Foundation, will share about her curatorial background and recent experiences in Kansas City. Over the last two and a half years, she has met with about 200 artists for studio visits throughout the greater Kansas City area. Of these artists, she will focus on the three contemporary artists of Japanese descent: Momoko Usami, Sumire “Skye” Taniai, and Rie Egawa. Artist Rie Egawa, born in Tokyo and based in Kansas City, will join Kitada in a brief conversation at the end of the talk.
