A Peaceful Reminder

In support of Cai’s long-time friend, Issey Miyake, the Studio posts a link to Mr. Miyake’s recent  letter in the New York Times Op-Ed section, which shares hopeful thoughts about peace. The letter can also be found in a recently published book for learning English through texts about peace.

In 2008, Cai had an exhibition in Issey Miyake’s hometown, Hiroshima, Japan. The photo below shows the installation view at Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art.
