This presentation complements the exhibition The Life and Art of Tokio Ueyama, on display in the western American art permanent galleries on the 7th floor of the Martin Building until June 1, 2025. Curator of the exhibition JR Henneman will provide an overview of the artist and his life, including his studies at prestigious American institutions and his travels abroad. She will also consider his artwork, which features landscape, portraiture, and still life, and acknowledge the incarceration of Japanese people in the US during World War II between 1942 and 1945. At that time, Ueyama was forcibly removed from his home in southern California and sent to the Granada Relocation Center, now known as the Amache National Historic Site, in southeast Colorado. This presentation will consider how the DAM discovered and interpreted the artwork of this overlooked American artist and how we sensitively tell this challenging World War II history.
