Biography. Art. The first-ever survey of the works of a gifted, complex, and engaging painter. Born in 1900 in the town of Wakayama in central Japan, and emigrated to the United States in 1919, Sugimoto's career spanned California, Paris, Mexico and two World War II concentration camps in Arkansas. "How can people who labor so hard, love so much and make the United States so much better be so excluded and then imprisoned? Sugimoto's brush continues to challenge us, his viewers, to expand the domain of 'we', the people" - John Kuo Wei Tchen, New York University.
