Kenji Fujita is a visual artist who makes work out of ordinary materials such as cardboard, aluminum foil, felt, wood, fabric, paper and paint. He creates commonplace geometries of shape and form that are activated as the viewer engages with the work in physical space and time. Fujita’s selected group exhibitions include the Venice Biennale (1988), The High Line, New York; the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridge eld, CT; the Brooklyn Museum. Selected solo exhibitions include: DD55, Cologne; Luhring Augustine Gallery, New York; Jean Bernier, Athens; Cable Gallery, New York; Daniel Weinberg Gallery, Los Angeles; Jack Tilton Gallery, New York. Fujita was also a recipient of grants and fellowships from the Adolf and Esther Gottlieb Foundation, Pollock-Krasner Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts.
