    Oklahoma Contemporary will host a solo exhibition offiber installations by Chiyoko Myose, a Japanese artistwho has been living in Wichita, Kan., for the past 20 years. With her works, Chiyoko 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. The works explore cultural, social, philosophical and spiritual themes. Fourinstallation pieces will have a common theme of “relationship,” from relationships between individuals to those between countries.  The exhibition will also include a piece that invites members of the

    community to contribute to the artwork by tying knots with threads. Each new knot is a reminder that we are all connected and we should treasure that connection. The exhibition will feature a new work, created especially for Oklahoma Contemporary.

    Additionally, Daniel Racer, a composer and professor at Friends University, has composed a chamber music piece in response to Chiyoko’s installations, and his music will be performed in the galleries during the exhibition opening.
