Bruce Yonemoto has developed a body of work which positions itself within the overlapping intersections of art and the cinema screen. He believes that the composition of mass media has become a new historical site of the domination of human behavior.

Bruce’s installations, photographs and sculptures have been featured in major one person shows at the Japanese American National Museum, the ICC in Tokyo, the ICA in Philadelphia, and the Kemper Museum in Kansas City. His work was featured in Los Angeles 1955-85 at the Pompidou Center, Paris, the Generali Foundation, Vienna, the Gwangju Biennial, Korea, Pacific Standard Time, Getty Museum, a survey show in Kanazawa, Japan, a retrospective at the Hong Gah Museum in Taiwan, a survey show of work he produced in South America at the Luckman Gallery in LA, a solo show at the JACCC Los Angeles and a retrospective at the Tate Modern London (2017).
