Sydney College of the Arts awards one Fellowship each year to a significant artist of international standing. In 2012, SCA is proud to welcome Professor Bruce Yonemoto, from the University of California, Irvine, as the 2012 SCA Visiting Research Fellow.

Yonemoto’s work explores experimental cinema and video art within the context of installation, photography and sculpture. His work has been exhibited in major museums and galleries, including the Getty Museum (USA), Gwangju Biennale (China), Centre Pompidou (France), and in 2010 his work was the subject of a major retrospective at FILMFORUM in Los Angeles. His work is held in numerous prestigious collections, including the Museum of Modern Art (New York), Whitney Museum of Art (New York) and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA), Los Angeles.

During his time at SCA, Yonemoto has presented lectures on his research and he will be conducting master classes with PhD candidates. While undertaking the Fellowship, Yonemoto has produced a new series of photographs and video work for the exhibition Spaced Out, opening in the SCA Research Gallery on Wednesday 24 October, 6 to 8pm.

Professor Brad Buckley, Associate Dean (Research), says "SCA and the University are indeed very fortunate to have an artist and researcher of Professor Yonemoto’s standing as this year’s Fellow."
