"Bruce Yonemoto: Screen Gems"
2001-12-14 until 2002-03-10
Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art
Kansas City, MO,
Born (1949) and reared in the Santa Clara valley, CA, Bruce Yonemoto
has witnessed the destruction of that valley and its reemergence
as Silicon Valley, a center of computer technology in America. Like
most children of his baby-boom generation, he experienced much of
the world through the media: television, Hollywood movies, photographs,
and comic books.
Working with screens, monitors, imagery, objects,
and ideas from video, film, television, and popular culture, Yonemoto
examines recurring themes of memory, the construction of identity,
and his third-generation Japanese-American heritage. Yonemoto is
an artist in residence. This is his first solo museum exhibition
in the Midwest.
