Ei Arakawa is a New York-based artist. Arakawa is interested in what might be termed as the placeholders of the art world: the circulating objects and documents that represent both commerical value and artistic enterprise. Arakawa is a graduate of the Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program. Ultimately, it is the circulation of ideas, as well as objects, that lies at the heart of his practice; he places the institutions that engender that circulation, whether the museum or the gallery, under equal scrutiny.
