Mine Okubo: Following Her Own Road Paperback – August 13, 2008
"Whereas the social and historical value of this [Citizen 13660] body of work is well established, the critical re-readings gathered in Mine Okubo: Following Her Own Road aim to interrogate and to expand the ways in which Citizen 13660 has come to be understood more than sixty years after its postwar publication…. Whether a reader agrees wholly or in part with the particulars of the seven central essays, what remains incontestable is the value of such projects in eliciting new and sometimes provocative thoughts on the small but steadily growing body of discourse on Asian American art and visual culture."―Journal of American Ethnic History
"It's hard not to like Mine Okubo as we come to know her though this first book-length study of her life and work: feisty, eccentric, and deeply committed to her art. A slim, beautifully produced volume, Mine Okubo: Following Her Own Road is both a tribute to the artist, who died in 2001, and an important step in remedying the dearth of scholarship on her work . . . . this collection offers less the 'definitive version' of her life and work, and more an incitement to re-view it in new ways that throw its power and charm into relief."―Rain Taxi
"Robinson and Creef have produced a fine and wonderful tribute to the life and work of Mine Okubo. . . . There is something for everyone in this remarkably compact but dense volume. . . . The editors have produced a very 'smart' and beautiful retrospective of her life, giving us a sense of Okubo's rightful place in Japanese American history, as well as the larger canvas of American history."―Nichi Bei Times
"To me life and art are one and the same, for the key lies in one's knowledge of people and life. In art one is trying to express it in the simplest imaginative way, as in the art of past civilizations, for beauty and truth are the only two things which live timeless and ageless."―Miné Okubo
