Miho Hagino was born in Japan. Since 1996, she has resided in Mexico City.
Her work delves into the human being as a subject among the masses, focusing on the individual who has become "alienated" geographically, historically, physically, or due to identity and social context.
Hagino takes a diverse approach to gender and her career as an artist well versed in conceptual art, installation, performance, sculpture, and even public art, all expressed through media such as video, photography, resin, ceramics, etc.
Her many individual shows include: "Muxes: corazones y brazos abiertos. Muxes: warm hearts and open arms" (Bar Jardín, Juchitan de Zaragoza, Oaxaca, 2018 y Maria Grever Theater Gallery, León, Guanajuato, 2019); “Project Japan. A Land in Memories”, .(with Taro Zorrilla, C.A.P. Kobe, Japón, 2014, Cervantino International Festival, Guanajuato, México, 2014, Mexico City International Airport 2010); “Blue Piano,” Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros (with Aki Takahashi, Mexico City, 2005); “Flower Place. Already Made,” Garash Galería (with Jason Rhoades, Mexico City, 2004); and “First Chapter Opening. Already Made” at Oficina de Proyecto de Arte (OPA, also with Jason Rhoades, Guadalajara, Jalisco, 2003). Hagino participates in an ongoing variety of group exhibitions in Mexico, Asia, the United States, and Europe.
Also worthy of note is Hagino's creation of the Fundación Paisaje Social A.C. (Mexico City, 2009), which intervenes in public spaces and society at large in order to improve the quality of life. Likewise, she holds workshops in Japan and Mexico with the objective of reestablishing interpersonal relationships between individuals.
Hagino curated the exhibitions "Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo." (Japanese American National Museum, 2017) for Pacific Standard Time LA/LA of the Getty Foundation, "Selenite Garden. Contemporary art which unite between Mexico and Japan." (Museo Franz Mayer 2017 and Museo Arte e Historia de Guanajuato, 2017-2018), “Crystal Jungle/Selva de Cristal. Peripheral phenomenon of Japanese artists in Mexico" (Museo Universitario del Chopo, 2011, and Gran Galería Acapulco, Guerrero, 2013), which shed light on the work of Japanese artists in Mexico.
