Exhibitions


Making Waves: Japanese American Photography, 1920–1940 is an in-depth examination of the contributions of Japanese Americans to photography, particularly modernist art photography, much of which was lost as a result of the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. The exhibition presents 103 surviving works from that period.

An overview of Japanese American history from early immigration to the present day. Incorporates artifacts, artwork, and media—including rare home movies and a section of the barracks from the Heart Mountain concentration camp

With this inventive exhibition, the traditional Japanese art of origami is transformed from a childhood pastime into a sophisticated international art form. Nine contemporary artists, working in six different countries and ranging in age from 29 to 71, present a bold and innovative group of folded-paper works that include sculpture, large-scale installation, and conceptual pieces.

The first large-scale Hello Kitty retrospective in the United States is currently on display at the EMP Museum in Seattle, WA.

This groundbreaking photographic exhibition by Kip Fulbeck and Takahiro Kitamura, exploring the artistry of traditional Japanese tattoos, travels to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach, FL.
