Kiyoshi Hamada－’Strata of Memory -Light and Shadow-‘
A unique and telling aspect of Hamada’s development, the exhibition will feature approximately 30 of Hamada’s works from the 1980’s to his most recent oeuvre. Now in his 80s, Hamada’s most recent works reflect a certain maturity and confidence. Featuring a completely new series of semi-sculptural works, the exhibition will also showcase Hamada’s response to a series he began in the 1980’s called Drawings. An intimate exploration of visceral forms, Hamada’s newest semi-sculptural series of works provide a sense of calamity, at a time of great uncertainty.
An exhibition talk will be held with the artist, Kiyoshi Hamada, and guest speakers, Yuji Akimoto (Director of The University Art Museum – Tokyo University of the Arts, and Director of the Nerima Art Museum) and Ren Fukuzumi (Art Critic) on Sept 22.
*The session will be in Japanese but event highlights with English subtitles will be published thereafter.
