Notice: Change of Exhibition Content

Due to the effects of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), we are unable to present the large neon work that was scheduled to be shown when the exhibition opens. We would like to extend our apologies to all of those who were looking forward to this display.
We are continuing to explore the possibility of showing the work during the exhibition period, but at present no decision has been made. As soon as we reach a conclusion, we will post a notice on the website.

Wyn Evans began his career producing experimental film works in the late '70s, moving to include sculpture, installation, and photography as he expanded his range of expression in the '90s. Language, perception, and temporal awareness provide the conceptual foundation for Wyn Evans' diverse practice. His works escort us into a total sensory experience in which the artist intervenes and transforms the space with subtle, elegant, and poetic gestures. In addition to a display in the Atrium Gallery, the exhibition will include a large-scale neon work in the museum's entrance hall. Conceived as a dynamic dialogue with the facility's architectural spaces, the exhibition marks the artist's first solo show in a Japanese museum.
