Bio-Artist/Facilitatorat B4BEL4B Gallery
United States

Tiare Ribeaux is a Kānaka Maoli filmmaker and artist based between the Bay Area and Honolulu. Her artwork and films disrupt conventional storytelling methods by employing magical realist explorations of spirituality, labor, and the environment to critique both social and ecological imbalances. Ribeaux’s work traverses between the mundane and dreamworlds - creating stories around transformation and how our bodies are inextricably linked to land and water systems. Her films use visual narrative and components of speculative fiction and fantasy to reimagine both our present realities and future trajectories of healing, lineage, place and belonging. She integrates immersion within community, ancestral/personal narratives, and Hawaiian cosmology into her films. She has shown work both nationally and internationally, and has won numerous grants and awards for her artistic leadership including the Sundance Native Lab Fellowship, Indigenous Film Fund, the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, the Doris Duke Foundation, and the NEA, among others.
