This event has ended.

Michio Fukuoka (born in 1936) is an Osaka-resident sculptor. Ignoring current trends, he has continued to quietly deal with the question of what it means to create. This exhibition follows the trajectory of Fukuoka’s over 60-year practice, from the time he set out to become a sculptor in the 1950s to the present. In 2005, the artist announced that he was a “sculptor who no longer sculpts.”
