Simple motifs—trees, houses, and curtains—and geometric forms. Delicate, rhythmically placed colors. The works of Hiroshi Sugito (1970- ) commute between the abstract and figurative and work magic on people all over the world. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition at a Tokyo art museum. We invite you to enjoy Sugito’s most recent works in our large underground-level, void gallery space, with walls and floors displaying the special qualities of Kunio Mayekawa’s architecture.
