The Japanese American National Museum (JANM) and celebrated multi-media artist Taiji Terasaki are proud to announce the reopening of Transcendients: Heroes At Borders including new addition, Transcendients: 100 Days of COVID-19 and Memorial to Healthcare Workers. After a hiatus due to the pandemic, Terasakis’ living memory of the Japanese American concentration camps and tribute to those who continue the fight for democracy and justice for all will be on view at JANM beginning Friday, April 16th.

These weavings tell stories ranging from issues around race and class, to food sustainability, art, scientific innovations, and climate adaptation. Following not only a difficult year for artists, but a particularly painful few weeks of heightened racism and violence against the Asian community, JANM is honored to once again be a place of healing and renewal in this time.

Artist ( Description ): 

Taiji Terasaki is a Japanese American artist based in Honolulu, Hawaii. Growing up in a family of scientists and creatives, with a formal arts education, Terasaki has spent more than 30 years exploring avant-garde innovations in his craft, working in photography, sculpture, immersive and large-scale installations, and pioneering mediums like mist projections as canvas. His cutting-edge presentations are often juxtaposed by the subjects of cultural and environmental conservation, preservation, and restoration. Driven to advance Honolulu’s arts community, Terasaki is Board President of the Taiji and Naoko Terasaki Family Foundation, as a board member for the L.A.-based Terasaki Family Foundation, and as Board President of Art Explorium, a beloved nonprofit arts foundation for children that he co-founded with his wife Naoko and family friends Nate and Heather Smith. Terasaki most recently founded Terasaki Exhibitions, a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to inspire global change through art.
