Kengo Kito Multiple Star I

Dates : March 11 (Saturday), 2017 – June 25 (Sunday), 2018
Contemporary Art Gallery A

Hara Museum ARC is delighted to present Kengo Kito: Multiple Star, a 10-month long exhibition that will run for the duration of the year. The exhibition will be divided into three seasonal parts and featuring a completely different large-scale installation created on-site by the artist as its centerpiece.

For Kengo Kito: Multiple Star I, the first installment, Kito will create an installation consisting of hula-hoops, a material the artist has been working with for many years. The installation will occupy the entire space of the pyramid-shaped Gallery A, the museum’s main contemporary art gallery featuring a ceiling height of 13 meters and natural illumination from a skylight. In tune with the spirit of spring, Kito’s energetic and colorful installation will celebrate the joyful reawakening of life.

Reflecting the tri-part nature of the exhibition, the title “multiple star” refers to three or more stars that appear to be close to each other when viewed from the Earth. The large-scale installations by the Kito, who turns 40 this year, will exemplify the vivid, free-spirited brilliance of Kito’s imagination and are sure to captivate all who view them, like the stars that sparkle in the night sky.
