A screening and talk with the artist Gaku Tsutaja on her recent video work Beautiful Sky Golf Course, part of her ongoing World War II Club series. Based on archival research conducted during Tsujata’s onsite residency in 2019, the film focuses on the Fort Missoula Alien Detention Camp in Missoula, Montana where male members of the Issei (first generation Japanese immigrants) were detained during World War II without their families. These detainees were arrested following the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and transported to Montana for Loyalty Hearings intended to root out “dangerous alien enemies”.
This video is of the July 16th discussion of the film and Tsutaja’s larger project about the war, the nuclear bombing of 1945, and its aftermath. Guiding this discussion was Maika Pollack, Director and Chief Curator of the John Young Museum of Art and University Galleries at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. Pollack’s response helped contextualize Tsutaja’s project within a broader history of anti-Asian racism and modern and contemporary art on both sides of the Pacific Basin.
