The first English-language monograph on the avant-garde pioneer of fog sculpture

Fujiko Nakaya (born 1933) is one of Japan's most internationally celebrated contemporary artists. Participating in the 1960s performances of the New York-based collective Experiments in Arts and Technology (E.A.T.), Nakaya became internationally renowned for her immersive fog artworks. First created for the Pepsi Pavilion at Expo '70 in Osaka, these works defy traditional conventions of sculpture by generating temporary atmospheric transformations that physically engage with the public. Driven by early ecological concerns, Nakaya's groundbreaking work is based purely on water and air--elements that have particular significance in light of the climate crisis. From the artist's early paintings to her fog sculptures, single-channel videos, installations and documentation that reveal Nakaya's cultural and social references, this in-depth survey offers a comprehensive overview of the distinguished artist's work.
