Leo Rubinfien Exhibition
This event has ended.
Taka Ishii Gallery is pleased to announce our exhibition of work by Leo Rubinfien. Born in 1953, Rubinfien is an acclaimed American photographer who lives in New York City. He is the author of two critically praised books, A Map of the East and Wounded Cities, from which solo exhibitions have been given at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Seibu Art Forum, Tokyo, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington. A one-man show of work from Wounded Cities will appear at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, from August - October, 2011.
This is Rubinfien’s first exhibition at Taka Ishii Gallery. It will present 34 large photographs from many parts of the world, some in color and some in black and white, covering 30 years of Rubinfien’s career (all of the work is being taken from Rubinfien’s book-in-progress In the World City). At the same time as the Taka Ishii Gallery exhibition, a small exhibition of new work from New York from another of Rubinfien’s projects will be held at KURENBOH, Chohouin Buddhist Temple Gallery in Kuramae, Tokyo. Taka Ishii Gallery and KURENBOH are co-publishing The Ardbeg, a 16-page accordion book (with slipcase), with four large photographs and an original story by Rubinfien (in English and Japanese translation). The Ardbeg is being printed in a limited edition of 1000 copies, signed and numbered by the artist. Copies are available from Taka Ishii Gallery and KURENBOH.
From 2010-12-25 To 2011-01-29
