The Dog Show: Time Traveler Umeyama’s Drawings from the 21st Century, Hiromi Stringer
Hiromi Stringer uses drawings to create an installation of a traveling exhibition from a fictional museum, the Umeyama Time Teleportation Museum (UTTM).
The focus of UTTM is to showcase achievements and influences of the first time-traveler Shoei Umeyama, who time travels between the Japan of 170 years ago and various locations of the world in the 21st century. This Spring 2023, UTTM is proud to show Umeyama’s drawings, including 136 dog drawings and several reports he created in the 21st century both in the US and Germany. These works and reports by Umeyama (and Hiromi) are the somewhat distorted mirrors of the 21st century, providing glimpses into the world we live today.
