This event has ended.

This exhibition, "William Eggleston: 21st Century," showcases Eggleston's photographs taken since 2000, providing a comprehensive view of the recent work of this leading photographer. Although the works on display feature a wide variety of locations, including Eggleston's home state of Tennessee, and other places in America, Europe, and Russia, each shares Eggleston's characteristically subdued color palette and vibrant hues, almost making it seem as if they are all photographs of the same city.

Eggleston's works are characterized by the fact that they capture decidedly casual, everyday scenes that most people overlook, and yet are very painterly in their composition, with minute details that create a tautness and tension, moving the viewer.

Eggleston's work is concurrently being shown at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo in an exhibition called "William Eggleston: Paris-Kyoto" (June 5 to August 22, 2010). Featuring a series of works on Paris and Kyoto, the Hara Museum's show highlights scenes of these two great cities taken from Eggleston's perspective.

"William Eggleston: 21st Century" is an excellent opportunity to explore the recent work of this most influential and original photographer.

行きました。
ウィリアムエグルストン、よかった。
DVDの内容もじっくりと鑑賞できましたし、数冊の本もよんでゆったりとした時間が過ごせた。
普段から色味に対する興味が強い私ですが、構図も注目してみましたよ。
長島有里枝さんの作品と出あえたこともうれしかった。
私は初期の作品よりもSWISSのような雰囲気が好きですね。息子さんも誕生したという出来事もあってか、優しい雰囲気…
スカイ・ザ・バスハウスの周辺地域の雰囲気も良くて、また絶対行きたいお気に入りのスペースになりました。
