SHIMURAbrosSHIMURAbros

SHIMURAbros is a brother-sister duo consisting of Yuka Shimura, who was born in 1976 and holds a bachelor’s degree from Tama Art University and a master’s degree from University of the Arts London: Central St Martins, and her brother Kentaro, who was born in 1979 and holds a degree in Imaging Art from Tokyo Polytechnic University. After receiving an Excellence Award in the Art Division of the 2009 Japan Media Arts Festival, hosted by Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs, the duo went on to have their works shown at Festival de Cannes and the Berlinale Festival, and exhibited by art galleries in Japan and overseas. In recent years, the works of SHIMURAbros have been exhibited at the Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions, and the artists have also participated in the residence program at the National University of Singapore’s Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA). In 2017, ArtReview Asia magazine included SHIMURAbros in its list of “future greats”. SHIMURAbros relocated to Berlin in 2014 on a research grant from the Pola Art Foundation, and currently have roles as researchers in the studio of Olafur Eliasson.
