“Haruko Tanaka has called Los Angeles County her home for nearly 20 years and resides in Altadena. She is an interdisciplinary artist working in photography, film/video, installation and collaborative relational workshops and events. She said, "When making art, I am usually thinking a lot about the rich diversity of cultural knowledge that we all possess and the creative ways with which to unearth, present, and honor them through image, sound, space, and interaction." Tanaka received her B.F.A. from the University of Southern California and her M.F.A. from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). She has exhibited at numerous galleries and arts organizations in Valencia, Pasadena, Moorpark, Highland Park, Santa Monica, New York, Baltimore and Toronto.
Haruko is a 2018 recipient of the MacDowell Colony Fellowship in Film/Video Art.”
