Kimo Arbas, an artist based in Los Angeles, engaged in technology & transmedia storytelling through motion picture, vocals, performance, sound composition, time & space related works and thaumaturgy. He is concerned mostly with the power of spaces and our relation to them.
Arbas has exhibited his work on the east and west coasts of the United States, Europe, Australia, Ukraine and the Caucasus. He holds degrees from California Institute of the Arts and University of the Arts – Berlin, Germany.
Manifesta is the only itinerant European biennial of contemporary art. Since Manifesta’s inception in the early 1990s, it’s mission has been to examine the cultural topography of Europe. Every two years Manifesta finds a new city or region in which to temporarily embed itself. In the past Manifesta has typically selected peripheral or contested regions as hosts.
Zurich’s dynamic and complex urban environment will provide a socially, politically and artistically significant trajectory for Manifesta. This rich and rapidly evolving urban setting will give Manifesta 11 the opportunity to explore critical global issues relating to the processes of urbanisation, urban space and society while reassessing the role that art can play in these.
