Yurie Nagashima “And a Pinch of Irony with a Hint of Love”

This event has ended.
This is the first solo exhibition by Yurie Nagashima (1973-) to be held in a Japanese public museum. In 1993, while still attending Musashino Art University, she won the Parco Prize at the Urbanart #2 competition, receiving widespread acclaim. In 2001 she won the 26th Kimura Ihei Award for her photo-book, “Pastime Paradise.” In more recent years, she received the 26th Kodansha Essay Award in 2010 for her book, “Senaka no Kioku,” demonstrating the wide range of her creative activities.
This exhibition will feature works ranging from her famous early self-portrait series, to a series on plants that she created while staying in Switzerland in 2007, and her latest work in which she focuses on women’s life courses. Nagashima has continued to question the things she feels uncomfortable with, such as ideas of the family and women’s position in society. Her diversity of expression continues to expand, and this exhibition looks at her current work while reflecting on the course of her career.
