Seattleite Roger Shimomura’s art melds politics, identity, and ethnicity for a result that’s visually-inspiring and critically-acclaimed, but sometimes controversial. Shimomura, who spent part of his youth in a WWII-era American internment camp, will appear in conversation with Gary Faigin, Gage Academy co-founder and Artistic Director, for a discussion of his art, influences, and current projects. He’ll give insight into his work–from the superheroes and stereotypes he portrays, to his pop art spin on identity–and explore how his personal history and experiences have shaped his paintings, prints, and theatre pieces.
