Through sculpture, installation, drawing, photography, video, memorials and situated events, Garrick Imatani places the complexities and nuance surrounding race, the body, and political history within the framework of slow-moving performance and constructed landscapes. His work has been featured at the Schneider Museum of Art (Ashland, OR); Art in General (NY, NY); Portland Museum of Art (Portland, ME); Incident Report (Hudson, NY); Institute for Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art; Ditch Projects (Springfield, OR); Asian American Arts Centre (NY, NY); and, White Box at the University of Oregon, School of Architecture and Allied Arts amongst others. Support for Imatani’s work has come from the The Ford Family Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation, Oregon Arts Commission, Maine Arts Commission, Regional Arts and Culture Council, and Portland Institute for Contemporary Art.
Visiting artists and curators enrich PNCA’s MFA in Visual Studies, a multidisciplinary, mentor-based program that encourages independent inquiry and supports critical approaches to the production of visual art. Grounded in one-on-one mentorships, the program is enhanced by exhibition opportunities, seminars, residencies, and national and international travel.
