[Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum] A new frontier of the artist who is now on the mark, Reiko Iba! First exhibition in a museum in Tokyo for the first time in 10 years in a museum! 52 points including new works are exhibited !!

From July 20th (Sat), "Iba Reiko Exhibition" will be held at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum.
<Period: July 20th (Sat)-October 9th (Wed), 2019: Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum Gallery A, B, C>

Reiko Iba (1967-), fascinated by the artist's eyes and the world of motifs, has continued to express the scenery by drawing the texture and light that the motifs want to touch.
The style of making based on the photos taken by myself has not changed, but in recent years, the distance to the motif that has been approaching has gradually increased.
The interest in space and landscapes has increased, and the landscape around them has expanded, and the paintings of Iba have shown new developments. In this exhibition, we will present pictures as a new attempt, including paintings based on photographs taken at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum.
The private exhibition by Iniwa will be held for the first time in 10 years at the art museum since 2009, “Iba Reiko-The Place of the Day-” (Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Modern Art). By introducing recent works and new works as well as displaying the works before that time, we will approach the core of the unchanging interest of Iba Reiko as it has changed over the past 10 years. Prior to the opening ceremony, in addition to the video works that we have made our first challenge, we will introduce exhibition works and various events during the exhibition period.

1, solo exhibition centered on new works
2, first challenge to video work!
A solo exhibition at an art museum that will be the first in three or ten years (the first solo show at an art museum in Tokyo!)

[Comment on the exhibition from Atsuko Iba]
I am very happy to receive a request for a new solo exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, just 10 years after the solo exhibition at the Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Modern Art. On this occasion, I would like to try new things, and this time I am working on new works such as paintings, prints and videos.
The title says "Gaze", but we continue to produce while trying various "How to see". As I repeated the experiment, I could meet something beyond my imagination. By dismantling and reorganizing "seeing", you may come across new perspectives in everyday life. I hope you agree with that in this exhibition.
