poster for Miyako Ishiuchi “Grain And Image”

This event has ended.

Leading Japanese photographer Miyako Ishiuchi has consistently addressed themes such as existence and absence, people’s memories, and vestiges of time through her images of abandoned buildings, scars, silk kimono, and personal articles that belonged to atomic bomb victims. This exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of her professional debut focuses on “grain” - one of Ishiuchi’s buzz words. Consisting of approximately 240 works, here you can enjoy being captivated by early monochrome works as well as never-before-shown pieces. Don’t miss must-see vintage prints from her debut series “Yokosuka Story.”
