This event has ended.

The exhibition will include an edition featuring ten images from Daido Moriyama’s seminal title "Farewell Photography". The edition, produced to commemorate the presentation of "William Klein + Daido Moriyama" at London’s Tate Modern (October 10, 2012 – January 20, 2013), consists of black and white prints produced from digitally archived originals, subsequently reproduced in the media of silkscreen on paper. The silkscreen prints are produced by Tokyo-based Edition Works, responsible for the acclaimed 2011 Moriyama edition "ACCIDENT".

The 2012 "Farewell Photography" silkscreen prints exist as a genuine extension of Moriyama’s original, most extreme project; pixelated virtual images realized in the tactile media of silkscreen on paper suggest that contradictions enlivening Moriyama’s 1972 series, distinct within his oeuvre for expressing a near total disregard for photographic convention, remain vital within present-day practice.
