Tiare Ribeaux is a Hawaiian-American interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker based in the Bay Area. She is the Founder and Artistic Director of B4BEL4B gallery, and co-founder of REFRESH. As an artist, her work explores the interfacing of technology with our human bodies and the environment, and employs storytelling to make visible social and ecological imbalances while imagining more regenerative futures. She is interested in re-centering indigenous technology, and stories that include indigenous futures and the modern indigenous experience. 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.
She has shown work both nationally and internationally, including ISEA Gwangju and ISEA Hong Kong, IZOLYATSIA in Ukraine, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, the Copenhagen Fashion Film Festival, and the Imagine Science Film Festival in NYC. She was awarded a web residency with Akademie Schloss Solitude + ZKM in 2019 and selected for the American Arts Incubator in 2017-18 with the ZERO1 Art + Technology Network. She curated the Soundwave Biennial in San Francisco in 2016 and the CODAME Festival in 2015. She has won numerous grants and awards for her artistic leadership including two New and Experimental Works Grants from the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, the Building Demand for the Arts Grant from the Doris Duke Foundation, and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, San Francisco Grants for the Arts, the Citizen Diplomacy Action Fund, the Zellerbach Family Foundation, San Francisco Arts Commission, and the Center for Cultural Innovation, among others.
