ABOUT THE CURATOR

Tiare Ribeaux is a Hawaiian-American new media artist, curator and community organizer whose work explores materiality, infrastructures, and environment.

She has a background in fashion design and biotechnology and is interested by shanzhai, deep/dark/media ecologies, speculative futures, and collaborative entanglements. She is currently the Director of B4BEL4B Gallery, on the curatorial team of the REFRESH Biennial, and doing an artist exchange fellowship as part of the 2018 ZERO1 American Arts Incubator.
