Garrick Imatani is an artist whose work responds to the complexities of race, placemaking, and political history. Imatani’s process frequently stems from research, site visits and collaboration, resulting in sculptures, installations, drawings, photographs, videos, and public projects that use the language of slow-moving performance and constructed landscape to find their form. His work has been exhibited at Art in General, Asian American Arts Centre, Incident Report in New York; the Schneider Museum of Art, White Box at the University of Oregon, and Ditch Projects in Oregon; as well as, the Portland Museum of Art and Institute for Contemporary Art in Maine. He has received awards and grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation, Oregon Arts Commission, Maine Arts Commission, Regional Arts & Culture Council, Oregon Percent for Art Program and Portland Institute for Contemporary Art. Imatani has been an artist-in-residence at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Ragdale Foundation, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, and was a Ford Family Foundation Resident Artist for the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in 2015 and at the Ucross Foundation in 2016. He lives and works in Portland, OR.
