This event has ended.

After serving in the army during the Second World War and witnessing the absurdity of modern society first hand, Shin Miyazaki (b. 1922-) began to explore expressions of what is it to be human and to understand what life is through art. This practice has been directly informed by his experiences in a harsh Siberian detention center where he saw the damage and harm caused by the vortex of war up close.
The university art museum previously held an exhibition introducing Miyazaki’s early works in 2009, titled “Wandering.” This time around it will show works produced in the 1990s and thereafter. You can see planar works as well as three-dimensional pieces, including numerous drawings and monotype prints that resonate with the artist’s energy, showing his personal regrets and scenes from the past, as well as expressions of the now.
