Ron Terada, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago

Ron Terada is a Vancouver-based artist who has exhibited extensively in Canada and Europe over the past 15 years but has had relatively little exposure in the United States. Working in the high-tech and multicultural British Columbian city, where influences back and forth across the Pacific Rim are numerous and complex, as well as exploring his own Japanese Canadian identity, Terada has built a fascinating body of work that includes paintings, photographs, video, sound, books, and graphic design. Often using his position within the art world of Vancouver as the starting point for measuring his self-worth, self-esteem, and self-identification, he has used signage, advertising, and Hollywood films in unusual and inventive ways. –
