    This exhibition of 28 large-format works will be the artist's first solo show in an American museum since 1995 and the first time his color pictures will be shown in America.

    Shibata was recently featured in a two-person show at the National Arts Center, Tokyo, and in a solo retrospective at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum.
