To perform a line
April 29—July 10, 2022
The first solo institutional survey of Kazuko Miyamoto (b.1942, Tokyo)—a relatively little-known but significant artist—this exhibition reclaims Miyamoto’s contributions to the development of Minimalism, challenging its general understanding as male dominated, and embraces her highly individual artistic pursuit to reveal a sustained interest in the body through evocative conceptual experiments and investigations in performance and textiles.
