ISHIUCHI MIYAKO

Ishiuchi Miyako's Grainy World at Yokohama Museum of Art
9 December 2017 - 4 March 2018

The Yokohama Museum of Art in Japan has assembled an impressive selection of artworks that will be displayed in the institution’s next exhibition – Ishiuchi Miyako: Grain and Image.

 

As the name of the show reveals, the woman of the hour will be Ishiuchi Miyako, a Japanese photographer who has been producing masterworks since the late 1970s.

 

As many experts of the medium will tell you, Ishiuchi Miyako is one of the most highly acclaimed photographers alive in the world today. Among the many honors she has received during her lifetime, the 70-year-old was the first Asian woman to receive the Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography.

 

The photographs on display will demonstrate Ishiuchi Miyako‘s themes and her unique photo-making style. Consisting of approximately 200 items from her early years to some later never-before-shown photos, this exhibition will center on the grain, one of Ishiuchi’s artistic keywords that has defined her practice.
