Spring Season Start! The exhibition “World of Yukihisa Isobe: sign, environment”


Date Saturday, April 28 2018 - Sunday, May 6 2018
Hours 10:00 - 17:00 Last entry by 16:30
Cost Adult JPY500 / Children age under 15 JPY250 ※ Echigo-Tsumari Art Field 2018 Spring special ticket holder has an access to the museum once.
Since 2000, Isobe has been presenting artworks visualizing the characteristics of specific places, such as the series of four artworks featuring the Shinanogawa river including “Where Has the River Gone,” as well as “Monument of Mudslide,” and has been deeply engaged with the festival, helping to provide its conceptual backbone. This new wing of the warehouse museum will be a place to “present and store” his artworks. As the framework of the ‘warehouse museum’ is developed, we expect that the museum will become one of the key hub facilities which will attract many visitors.
This exhibition will consist of a diverse range of artworks by Isobe, arranged chronologically from his early era of ‘relief’ works to ones created during the “Wappen Period”; environmental works; and works during the transitional period as well as “Ecological Planning”; the survey of the environment of Echigo-Tsumari conducted in 1999; and documentations of a series of artworks for Echigo-Tsumari, including photographs, drawings, records as well as a georama of the river terraces of the Shinanogawa river. We hope you will enjoy experiencing this glimpse of “the World of Yukihisa Isobe” from 1950s to the present day.
