Seattle, Washington, USA
Year-long residency, 2021
“I am very pleased and honored to be selected as one of Densho’s 2021 Artists in Residence. Densho’s extensive digital archives have been an essential part of my own exploration and research about the experiences of my Japanese American members before, during, and after WWII. Densho’s historical photos, oral histories, and educational tools have influenced my artwork enormously over my art career and provided endless inspiration for exhibitions and public art projects. Thank you for this opportunity.” -Lauren Iida
This residency will culminate in a solo exhibition of new work at Artxchange Gallery in Seattle, Washington in January 2022.
