Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, 3000 General Pershing Blvd., will host this summer a solo exhibition of fiber installations by Chiyoko Myose, a Japanese artist who has been living in Wichita, Kansas, for the past 20 years.
With her works, Myose expresses her experiences of living in a foreign country; she considers herself as a sojourner, a person who stays in one place temporarily, like a traveler.
Titled “Sojourning,” the exhibit will open with an event from 3 to 6 p.m. today. It will include four installation pieces with a common theme of “relationship,” from relationships between individuals to those between countries, along with a piece that invites members of the community to contribute to the artwork by tying knots with threads. In addition, “Sojourning” will feature a new work created especially for Oklahoma Contemporary.
