This exhibition already underway at the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, showcases not only the works from the Fischers’ collection, but also precious documents detailing their correspondence with the artists as well as instructions regarding the works. Among these include the beautiful drawings for exhibition invitations, created simply by using graph paper and pen. The exhibition provides a glimpse into the moments where their intimate exchanges became works of art.

Dates: 26 March 2022 – 29 May 2022
Venue: Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art
10:00 – 18:00 (Closed on Monday) *Last admission is 30 minutes before closing.
