OKI Junko: The Exposed

The schedule could be changed to prevent the further spreading of COVID-19.We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and seek your kind understanding and cooperation.
 
This is the first solo exhibition at an art museum of works by OKI Junko (b.1963), who creates unique works employing the method of embroidery. With the thread her mother had left as a start, Oki began embroidering without a teacher. Via an initial period of embroidering on clothes and bags, in recent years, she has been producing works transcending genres such as painting and sculpture and presenting her works energetically in Japan and abroad. This exhibition provides a full view of her creative work from rare early works to representative embroidered works, new works, and an installation.

Beautiful BooksPublications by Yukawa Shobō and Prints from the Museum Collection

The schedule could be changed to prevent the further spreading of COVID-19.We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and seek your kind understanding and cooperation.
 
Yukawa Shobō was established by YUKAWA Seiichi (1937–2008) in 1969. Based in Osaka and then Kyoto, it published limited-edition books. The elaborate printing, design, and binding of the books this publisher produced enchanted many a bibliophile until the business closed in 2008. The charms of unique books produced in collaboration with enthusiastic artists such as the print artists OKADA Roshiw (b. 1949) and KARASAWA Hitoshi (b. 1950) or the textile artist MOCHIZUKI Michiaki (b. 1953) are presented through recent acquisitions. In addition, focusing on the relation between letters and pictures in print, there is also a display of wood engravings by KARASAWA Hitoshi.
