In September 2018, abstract artist Ted Kurahara sat down with VoCA Board Member and fellow CALL Artist Arlan Huang at the Joan Mitchell Foundation to discuss his life and legacy. Their conversation traces the arc of Kurahara’s artistic practice alongside his many inspirations, including the Golden Section, European painting traditions, Haiku poetry, and personal narrative.

This interview was part of the fourth season of our on-going CALL/VoCA Talks series, hosted in partnership with the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) Program. These programs aim to highlight the innovative CALL initiative while also underscoring the crucial need for dialogue with artists around the production, presentation, and preservation of their work.
