EI ARAKAWA

Born 1977 in Japan, Ei Arakawa graduated from the School of Visual Arts and now lives in Brooklyn. Ei Arakawa stages culturally investigative group performances, which teeter on the brink of random chaos. His choreographed actions have included simulated half-time shows with the rapid building and unbuilding of a stage; a manned art factory creating replicas of On Kawara paintings; a large dance calisthenics class as an elaborate homage to Japanese Gutai action-art; and most recently, a make-shift outdoor bar and performance venue on Bard College??ôs campus. Recent performances include P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center, Reena Spaulings, Greene Naftali Gallery, Yale, and Columbia University.
