Maiko Tanaka



Curator, Writer


Maiko Tanaka is a curator based in the ancestral and unceded territory of Lenapehoking (Brooklyn, NY). Her practice is influenced by her ongoing study of science fiction and a recent focus on Shin Buddhist theology. For her curatorial projects, Maiko works in conversation with artists and other practitioners to cultivate conditions for deep listening into non dualistic languages intertwined with the past, present, and future temporalities that specific art works or practices invoke. She has curated projects for Toronto Biennial, Trinity Square Video, Nuit Blanche Toronto, Onsite Gallery at OCADU, Justina M. Barnicke Gallery (now, Art Museum at University of Toronto), InterAccess, Gendai, and Casco in Utrecht/NL. She co-edited The Grand Domestic Revolution Handbook (Casco) and Model Minority (Gendai) and has written for Scapegoat, C Magazine, and various artist publications.
