Bruce Yonemoto

Bruce Yonemoto has developed a body of work which positions itself within the overlapping intersections of art and commerce, of the gallery world and the television screen. His work attempts to manipulate an audience with a simultaneous recognition of the machinations of the manipulation. He believes that the composition of mass media has become a new historical site
of the domination of human behavior.

During Bruce's s twenty-year collaboration with his brother, Norman, he has been honored with numerous awards and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Film Institute, The Rockefeller Foundation, and the Maya Deren Award for Experimental Film and Video. Most recently, Bruce's solo installations, photographs and sculptures have been featured in major one person shows at the ICC in Tokyo, the ICA in Philadelphia, and the Kemper Museum in Kansas City.

He has had solo exhibitions at Blum & Poe and Lemon Sky, Los Angeles, Gray Kapernekas , New York, Tomio Koyama, Tokyo and his work was featured in Los Angeles 1955-85 at the Pompidou Center, Paris, and the Generali Foundation, Vienna. Bruce is a professor and chair of Studio Art at the University of California, Irvine.
