Tetsugo Hyakutake (MFA '09) has exhibit in Challenge 3 at Fleisher Art Memorial, Opening Sat. May 1

Tetsugo Hyakutake (MFA '09) has an exhibition as part of the Wind Challenge at Fleisher Art Memorial opening Saturday, May 1 from 5:30 - 7:30pm.

Born and raised in Japan, Tetsugo Hyakutake remembers hating the ubiquitous factories that created so much pollution. Now an adult, he cannot help but to be mesmerized by their mythological structures and colored lighting. By recording reality through photography, with minor aesthetic adjustments, Hyakutake confronts his complicated relationship with modern industrial Japan. He intends his work to serve as a tribute to those who made it possible for Japan to thrive as a nation, as well as to create open dialogue on all the contradictory “truths” it created through its' industrialization.

Fleisher Art Memorial presents the final exhibition in the thirty-second season of the three-part Wind Challenge Exhibitions at Fleisher - the Delaware Valley's premier juried artist exhibition program. This season's nine Challenge artists were selected from a field of nearly 300 applicants to exhibit in one of three three-person exhibitions. Challenge 3 features the work of artists Tetsugo Hyakutake, Scott Kip, and Brenna K. Murphy.
