The exhibition Southern Geometries, from Mexico to Patagonia celebrates the wealth of color and diversity of styles in the geometric art of Latin America, bringing together 250 artworks made by over 70 artists from the Pre-Columbian period to present. Including modernist abstract art, sculpture and architecture as well as ceramics, weaving, and body painting, the exhibition explores the wide range of approaches to geometric abstraction in Latin America, whether influenced by Pre-Columbian art, the European avant-garde or Amerindian cultures. Southern Geometries weaves visual relationships among diverse cultures and regions across time, inviting visitors to discover the vibrant patterns and designs of Latin American art.

New artwork unveiled at Inujima "Art House Project"

Yellow Flower Dream, a work by Beatriz Milhazes has opened in Japan on November 1st, 2018, at Inujima Island for the "Art House Project - A-Art House”, and also will be joining Setouchi Triennale 2019 starting from April 26th, 2019.  

Based on the artist's perception of the architecture of A-Art House as a "sculpture uniting the surrounding community and nature", this work represents, through the use of colors overflowing with energy, a virtual landscape depicting the vitality of the geometry and daily life unfolding in Inujima's nature.

Inujima Art House Project was launched with the objective of inspiring the local community of Inujima, allowing them to experience the beautiful landscapes of everyday life and the familiar natural environments that extend beyond the artworks. This project was developed by artistic director Yuko Hasegawa and architect Kazuyo Sejima for the village on Inujima.

The Inujima “Art House Project” is a part of art-related activities, Benesse Art Site Naoshima, conducted by Benesse Holdings, Inc. and Fukutake Foundation on the islands of Naoshima, Teshima and Inujima to create significant spaces in resonance with the pristine nature of the Seto Inland Sea region.
