Biography

Tomie Arai is a public artist who collaborates with local communities to create visual narratives that give meaning to the spaces we live in. Through a framework of collaboration, Arai uses the specificity of her experience as an Asian American as a personal space in which to locate broader issues of race and gender; a space through which a glimpse of common ground is made possible. Working towards a more equitable art world and addressing Issues of racial and cultural equity, inclusion and exclusion, of belonging and non-belonging, have been the compelling themes of her artistic practice.

 

Ms. Arai has designed both temporary and permanent public works of art for Creative Time, the US General Services Administration Art in Architecture Program, the NYC PerCent for Art Program, the MTA Arts for Transit Program, The National Endowment for the Arts, The Pew Charitable Trust and the San Francisco Arts Commission.

 

Her work has been exhibited nationally and is in the collections of the Library of Congress, the NY Public Library, the Williams College Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Japanese American National Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art.  She is currently the co-founder of the Chinatown Art Brigade, a women-led artists collective that has received support from A Blade of Grass, the Rubin Foundation, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Smithsonian’s Asian Pacific American Center. Ms. Arai is currently a Visiting Scholar at the Asian Pacific American Institute at New York University.
