The universe of Yasuko Toyoshima

The universe of Yasuko Toyoshima
#Exhibitions

The large solo exhibition that reveals the 30-year career of the artist Yasuko Toyoshima will bring together for the first time almost 400 works from the museum and private collections, from the first to the last works and which will be exhibited for the first time at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. 30 years of research, which began in 1990 and which today propose a monographic exhibition which recounts the artistic journey of Toyoshima who, with her works - often placed in the realm of conceptual art - exploits her interests and feelings of alienation to re-examine and reinterpret the structures and rules that govern our thoughts and actions that we have inevitably internalized and carry out automatically every day. In doing so, Toyoshima guides the viewer to question how human thought patterns, society, and the self are formed. It is a guide that Toyoshima offers to all of us, maintaining the perspective of the "I" and continually comparing ourselves, each in our own way, with the various systems, values and rules that surround us.
