Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei City, Taiwan
The Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Yoshitomo Nara, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Taiwan.
In April of last year, Yoshitomo Nara took to Twitter to express his thanks for Taiwan's donations of face masks to Japan—an act of gratitude which caught the attention of President Tsai Ing-wen, whose tweeted response to the artist marked the start of the project to bring Nara’s first solo exhibition to the country.
Taking place on the 10th anniversary of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, Nara’s landmark exhibition is one part in a series of programming put together by the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association and the General Association of Chinese Culture, to celebrate the friendship between Taiwan and Japan.
The exhibition will include Nara's new painting Miss Moonlight (2020), which will be exhibited outside of Japan for the first time following its debut in the exhibition STARS: Six Contemporary Artists from Japan to the World at Mori Art Museum, Tokyo in 2020. In honor of the exhibition at the Kuandu Museum, promotional cards featuring Miss Moonlight will be exclusively available in the January issue of Fountain magazine.
