The Gaze of Things. Japanese Photography in the context of Provoke
Comunidad Valenciana, Valencia, 02/01/2019 - 11/17/2019
This exhibition emerging from the Per Amor a l’Art Collection constitutes a journey through Japanese art from the 1950s up to the present.
The exhibition focuses on the photographic medium and the artists involved in the formation of Vivo (1957-1961) such as Shomei Tomatsu and Akira Sato, as well as the collective responsible for Provoke magazine (Provocative Materials for Thought) (1968), such as Yutaka Takanashi and Daido Moriyama.
The experimental way in which these artists presented images as products of an era characterised by political events of great relevance became a phenomenon and a reference for many other Japanese artists to come.
