Yoh Shomei



Japanese artist
May 20 - June 14, 1998

Within the framework of the cultural activities for The Japan Week in Montréal, from June 8 to 12, 1998, CIAC presents Yoh Shomei. The exhibition includes original canvases created for the book Not Mines, But Flowers, published in 1996 by the artist in collaboration with the Association to Aid Refugees, Japan. The profits generated through sales of the book (over 350,000 copies since its publication) are donated in their entirety to de-mining operations. It is estimated that the sale of one book allows for the de-mining of 10m2.

The exhibition is organized on the occasion of the twinning of the two cities of peace, Hiroshima and Montréal.
