Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Tradition in a Modern World
Presented by the Japanese American National Museum
This groundbreaking photographic exhibition by Kip Fulbeck and Takahiro Kitamura explores the artistry of traditional Japanese tattoos as well as their rich history and influence on modern tattoo practices. Although tattooing is largely seen as an underground activity in Japan, it has persevered and is now internationally renowned for its artistry, lineage, historic symbolism and the skill of its practitioners. Perseverance features the work of seven highly acclaimed tattoo artists - Horitaka, Horitomo, Horishiki, Miyazo, Shige, Junii, and Yokohama Horiken - as well and a host of other modern tattoo experts. The exhibition includes life-sized photographs of full body tattoos, interactive elements, and more.

kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa
Presented by the Japanese American National Museum
This is an exhibition of portraits by artist Kip Fulbeck, who traveled the country photographing Hapa of all ages and walks of life. Originally a derogatory label derived from the Hawaiian word for half, the word Hapa has been embraced as a term of pride by many whose mixed-race heritage includes Asian or Pacific Rim ancestry. Fulbeck's work seeks to address in words and images the one question that Hapa are frequently asked: "What are you?" By pairing portraits of Hapa - unadorned by make-up, jewelry, and clothing - along with their handwritten statements on who they are, Fulbeck has produced powerful yet intimate expressions of beauty and identity. kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa is an artist's attempt to explore Hapa - who now number in the millions - and it offers a complex perspective on the changing reality of contemporary America.
