Details

First Solo Museum Exhibition by Emerging Artist Aya Momose

The Towada Art Center is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Aya Momose from December 10, 2022, to June 4, 2023. Momose is known for her video works, which explore perspectives surrounding the body, sexuality, and gender on themes across multiple layers of communication. In Momose’s latest exhibition, female voice actors take center stage. In Japan, female actors often voice young male characters in anime productions, such as Megumi Ogata’s voicing of Shinji Ikari in Neon Genesis Evangelion and Mayumi Tanaka playing the role of Monkey D. Luffy in One Piece. Momose explores the fluid relationship between the gender of the voice actor and that of the character they inhabit. Through new and past works exploring these themes, this exhibition lends a voice to the marginalized and underrepresented groups who lack one.
