CREATIVE IMPACT LAB — ŌTEPOTI DUNEDIN: ARTIST TALK BY TIARE RIBEAUX
Saturday, 9th December 2023 2:00 PM
Hutton Theatre, Tūhura Otago Museum
Tiare Ribeaux, is a Kanaka 'Ōiwi filmmaker, artist and creative producer based in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. Her work involves a magical realist exploration of spirituality, labour, and the natural environment, drawing upon the structure of dreamworlds and Hawaiian cosmology to critique both social and ecological imbalances.
Her films use visual narrative storytelling and components of speculative fiction and fantasy to reimagine both our present realities and future trajectories of lineage, queerness, place and belonging. Her work often combines with installation elements to create immersive and expanded media experiences. As a curator and producer, she founded B4BEL4B Gallery in 2014 as a platform and community space to prioritize underrepresented + queer artists in media arts, where she was the artistic director for 8 years. She co-founded REFRESH Art, Science, and Technology in 2017, curated the Soundwave Biennial in San Francisco in 2016, and was artistic director for the CODAME Festival in 2015.
Part of Tiare's visit to Dunedin will be to lead a series of workshops for Creative Impact Labs' selected participants. Creative Impact Lab Dunedin is a Leonardo international exchange supported by the U.S. Embassy in Wellington and hosted by Tūhura Otago Museum.
