On display now through October 6, 2013
While I have placed, with permission, some images for you to see in this blog post, I can assure you that these in no way can have the effect that seeing these very large images in person will have on you when you go to visit.
In addition to this great show you can also go to see the Nick Cave exhibit which continues to entrance me.
While both shows are relatively small in the number of items there to see, they are of such importance in what they offer that you simply cannot miss seeing them.

Since the early 1980s, Toshio Shibata has turned his lens on the roads, dams and bridges of Japan to create visually striking images highlighting the delicate balance between nature and the artificial. On view from April 20 - October 6, 2013, Toshio Shibata, Constructed Landscapes features 28 large scale photographs, including the first of the artist’s color photographs ever to be exhibited at an American museum.
