CALL/VoCA Talk: Ted Kurahara

Pioneering artist Ted Kurahara sits down with fellow CALL Artist and VoCA Board Member Arlan Huang to trace the arc of his artistic practice alongside his many inspirations, including the Golden Section, European painting traditions, Haiku poetry, and personal narrative. From his childhood in Seattle and time spent in an Internment Camp before serving in the 442nd Japanese American Battalion, Kurahara has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to teaching and art making in cities and schools across the US.

This event was one of a series hosted in partnership with VoCA to highlight the innovative CALL initiative while also underscoring the crucial need for dialogue with artists around the production, presentation, and preservation of their work. The full-length Talk is below, and transcripts of VoCA Talks are available upon request. Please direct queries to [email protected].
