Pipilotti Rist

This is the rst large-scale international exhibition of contemporary art to be held in Kyoto. Approximately 40 artists from around the world will participate in the twomonth exhibition at the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art, The Museum of Kyoto, and other locations around the city.

Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist will participate in this exhibition. Especially in her earlier works, Rist uses the clichés imposed on women by our male-dominated society to expose their stereotypes and to a-rm the negative aspects of femininity, creating works that provide strong encouragement for women. Many of her recent works are large rich color video installations.
