This catalog documents a grand collaboration between seven institutions in North and South Carolina and ten contemporary Japanese artists. The artists were in the Carolinas for six-week residencies, creating work using natural materials or processes to be installed at their host institutions. This award-winning catalogue documents this landmark exhibition with essays by co-curators Mark Sloan and Brad Thomas, along with hundreds of photographs by Mitchell Kearney chronicling the artists’ processes.

Force of Nature: Site Installations by Ten Japanese Artists won the 23rd Annual Mary Ellen LoPresti Award and Gold in the Southeastern Museums’ 20th Annual Design Competition.
