This event has ended.
The works of Hiroshi Sugito (b. 1970-) fluctuate between the abstract and figurative, working their magic on audiences the world over. They feature simple motifs — trees, small houses, the sky, boat, curtains — and various geometric forms. These are expressed in delicate, rhythmically applied colors.
“module or lacuna” will mark the artist’s first solo exhibition at a Tokyo art museum, where you are invited to enjoy a lineup of drawings and paintings, including some of Sugito’s most recent works, on display in the large underground, gallery space. The concrete walls and tiled floors of this space are designed specifically to bring out the special qualities of Kunio Mayekawa’s architecture. Enjoy the combination of Sugito’s simple forms in this unique setting.
Venue: Gallery A, B, C.
The curator will give a talk within that gallery space that introduces exhibition highlights .
