Recognised the world over for her string installations, Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota is the subject of three major projects at the Art Gallery from late August. This trilogy of offerings includes the first solo exhibition of Chiharu’s work in an Australian public gallery, presenting works from the artist’s collection and from public and private collections in Germany, Japan and Australian and including early performance work, captured in photography and the moving image, and a selection of her drawings. Also on view at the Gallery will be a major site-specific commission that embodies the space within the Melrose Wing and a new sculptural work made for the facade of the Gallery.

The three major projects include:

Absence embodied
Installation in the Melrose Wing of European Art
From 24 August 2018

Exhibition in Galleries 9, 10 and 11
24 August–28 October 2018

Art Gallery Facade

Both the major solo show and new commission are made possible through the generous support of the Gwinnett family. Presented as part of the OzAsia Festival.
