Dorothy Imagire is a mixed media artist whose exhibitions range from the New Museum and Parsons in New York City to the Long Beach Museum of Art in California and many places in between, including the Houston Center of Photography in Texas. Her awards include a New England Foundation for the Arts New Forms grant and a New England Foundation for the Arts Regional Fellowships for Visual Artists in Photography. She has been an artist-in-residence at the Center for Photography in Woodstock, New York, and at Yaddo in Saratoga, New York.

Since 1989, Imagire’s work has addressed issues of Asian American identity through installations on the Japanese American concentration camp (history/family memory), and mixed Japanese American identity.  Recently, she has explored Asian American female stereotypes through her vampire series and other “exotic” fetishes.

She is a RISD MFA ‘90 graduate, having received her BFA from the University of New Hampshire.
