Hiroshi Sugimoto "Memories of Origin"
This event has ended.
Hiroshi Sugimoto is one of Japan's leading contemporary artists whose work has sold for several hundred thousand dollars at overseas auctions. He combines the use of photography as a conceptual medium with extensive experience as an antique dealer and a deep knowledge of art history. In recent years, Sugimoto has also been active as a producer and curator of traditional Japanese performing arts, designing sets and props for Noh theater.
Directed by Yuko Nakamura, this is the first documentary that closely tracks Sugimoto's life and career over a long period as he travels from Japan to New York, southern France and Sydney. It was nominated for an international Emmy award in the art category.
