After becoming the youngest-ever recipient of the Yasui Prize, Miran Fukuda early on forged a distinctive style while participating in numerous international art exhibitions. This exhibition will explore Miran Fukuda’s world through some 70 works, including her foremost works of the 1990s and 2000s, and 20 new works created especially for this exhibition.
Since its founding, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum has supported the development of modern and contemporary art in Japan in an important role as a venue for public entry exhibitions (Kobo-ten). In line with our history and tradition as a museum that has worked closely with artists contemporary to the times, down through the decades, we are holding solo exhibitions devoted to contemporary artists.
The first exhibition in this series will feature Miran Fukuda (1963—). Born in Tokyo, Fukuda studied painting at Tokyo University of the Arts. She has since participated in numerous contemporary Japanese art exhibitions and international art exhibitions, building her career with this museum and Ueno as her main stage. Through artworks giving play to the museum’s high-ceiling void, artworks paying tribute to the museum’s architect, Kunio Maekawa, and other spatial constructions integrated with the museum building, the exhibition will provide an immersion in “Miran’s world.”
