"We have to challenge technology by using technology in the artworks we make."
Introducing Oakland Original™ Tiare Ribaux, new media and interdisciplinary Hawaiian-American artist, filmmaker and curator based in the Bay Area.
Tiare is the Founder and Artistic Director of B4BEL4B gallery, and co-founder of REFRESH Art, Science, and Technology. She is interested in exploring the interfacing of technology with the environment, rhizomatic networks, multi-species entanglements, and speculative futures. Her recent work at the intersection of art + biology aims to redefine and subvert the binaries of the natural versus the unnatural, and technology versus nature.
B4BEL4B is an artist-run gallery and community space for new media and transdisciplinary art with an emphasis on diversity, social engagement and network culture. Their arts program prioritizes women, non-binary, poc, and critically underrepresented groups in technology and media art spaces. The gallery engages communities through a rotating calendar of exhibitions, events, groups, and workshops.
