Learn more about our latest exhibition Hapa.me, with the artist and curator, Kip Fulbeck. Fulbeck has photographed thousands of people, inviting them to define themselves in their own words and with their own handwriting. In this energetic and entertaining artist talk, Fulbeck shares some of his behind-the-scenes experiences working with these individuals — showing some never before seen images and extrapolating how these stories reflect our contemporary world. 





Kip Fulbeck has exhibited and performed in over 20 countries and has been featured on CNN, MTV, The TODAY ShowThe New York Times, Voice of America, and numerous NPR programs. He is the author of six books including Part Asian, 100% Hapa and the exhibition artist of Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Tradition in a Modern World. Fulbeck teaches as a Distinguished Professor of Art at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he received the Faculty Diversity Award and the Distinguished Teaching Award, and has been named an Outstanding Faculty Member five times. A complete overachiever despite being only part-Chinese, he is also an avid surfer, guitar player, ocean lifeguard, tropical fish enthusiast, and multiple-time national champion in U.S. Masters Swimming.
