Jerry Takigawa: Balancing Cultures
June 15, 2018 – August 1, 2018

Opening: Saturday, June 16, 2018 6-9pm with Gallery Talk @ 7pm

“”Balancing Cultures is a family history project that bears witness to the tolerance and subsequent acceptance of a paradoxical dilemma. The images serve as a reminder of the injustices that can result from hysteria, racism, and economic exploitation. This work has also illuminated the origins of the Japanese American paradoxical worldview” -Jerry Takigawa. The work was selected from over 100 applicantsby juror Paula Tognarelli. “He leads the viewer into the work by way of a quiet, often-meditative aesthetic….In these current times, I wanted to award Jerry Takigawa as a reminder for us all to learn from the past and to learn to recognize a travesty of justice when put in motion.”
