In April 2022, Kevin Bernstein, associate professor of art, will have three of his paintings included in the 21st Japan International Art Exchange Exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. The show is an annual international exhibition that has taken place at various prestigious venues in Japan over the last 20 years.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum is Japan's first public art museum and features important masterworks spanning the Ukiyo-e woodblock prints from the Edo period through the modern works of such notable artists as Isamu Noguchi to contemporary pieces and installations by artists currently working in Japan. The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum also regularly presents thematic exhibitions of historical Western Art, including works by such artists as Da Vinci, Titian, Van Gogh, Matisse and many others. Curators of the U.S. works were Julienne Johnson and Shimmin Garou in collaboration with specially appointed art advisors, Tang Yongli and Zhang Zhi Min from China.

Bernstein's work was also selected by Mika Yoshitake for inclusion in the exhibition "2021 NxNW Out of Isolation" at the Yellowstone Art Museum. Yoshitake is currently an independent curator and was previously a curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. The show ran from July through October.
