First Solo US Exhibition

“Tetsuya Umeda’s installations are as much about the sounds as they are about the arrangement of everyday items he uses. Umeda’s main work is the object’s performance, which he helps orchestrate, but is never in control of” – The Japan Times

PICA presents Osaka-based sound and installation artist Tetsuya Umeda in a multi-faceted engagement. Representing his first solo exhibition in the US, Umeda will create a site specific installation at PICA entitled See, Look at Observed what Watching is.

Umeda’s work reinvents essential features of his surrounding environment, creating an installation that offers a realistic experience of that particular moment in space and time. His installation work has been shown internationally at museums and galleries, as well as site-specific locations like ruined buildings, lakes, mountaintops, factories, and tunnels.
