California State University, Dominguez Hills

Pasadena Art Alliance

Cal State Dominguez Hills provides education, scholarship, and service that are by design accessible and transformative. It welcomes students who seek academic achievement, personal fulfillment, and preparation for the work of today and tomorrow.

Grant funding will be used to support the creation, exhibition, and documentation of new work by emerging artist and CSUDH PRAXIS Studio Artist-in-Residence Yoshie Sakai. In the exhibition Yoshie Sakai: KOKO’s Neighborhood, Sakai creates immersive and inviting environmental installations and videos that embody the intricacies of familial gender roles, consumerism, pop culture, and related themes for many first-generation Americans in underserved communities. Documentation will be a 20-page publication featuring an essay by Meg Whitford of Artforum. The show is scheduled for January to March 2019.
