On display at Oklahoma Contemporary is a solo exhibition of fiber installations by Chiyoko Myose, a Japanese artist who has been living in Wichita, Kanasa, for the past 20 years. With her works, Chiyoko Myose’s Sojourning expresses her experiences of living in a foreign country. Myose considers herself as a sojourner, a person who stays in one place temporarily, like a traveler. Her works explore cultural, social, philosophical and spiritual themes. Four installation pieces will have a common theme of “relationship,” from relationships between individuals to those between countries.
The exhibition at Oklahoma Contemporary also includes a piece that invites members of the community to contribute to the artwork by tying knots with threads. Each new knot is a reminder that we are all connected and we should treasure that connection. The exhibition will feature a new work, created especially for Oklahoma Contemporary.
Chiyoko Myose: Sojourning will be on display from June 2 through August 11, 2018. It’s worth seeing in person and admission is free so go check it out.
