This event has ended.

Only 30 works remain from the short life of copperplate etching artist Keiko Kiyohara (1955–1987). Thirty years after her death, these intricate, mesmerizing prints are now admired for their mysterious and aesthetically rich narratives and their literary inclinations with references to Juran Hisao and Yukio Mishima. This exhibition presents all of Kiyohara’s remaining works, as well as original prints and sketches for her etchings, a proof showing the process behind her last completed work “Solitary Island,” notes, and other materials including some that have never been displayed before. Works by European painters and printers who influenced Kiyohara, such as Jacques Callot, Gustave Moreau, Rodolphe Bresdin, and Odilon Redon, offer a fuller picture of her work and creative inspirations.
