This event has ended.
Photographer and contemporary artist Nobuyoshi Araki has been turning his camera lens to a truly wide variety of subjects since the 1960s, producing work that is often provocative and guaranteed to draw attention. Having experienced a battle with prostate cancer surgery in 2009, followed by the passing of his beloved cat, Chiro, and the devastating Great East Japan Earthquake, Araki has come to embrace the idea that “death = passing,” and he makes this the focus of this three-part exhibition being held across Toyota Municipal Museum of Art, the Niigata City Art Museum , and the Shiseido Gallery. Having become more conscious of “mortality,” and beginning to prepare for his own passing, Araki has been traveling through Toyota and Niigata, looking back and reflecting upon his own life, and now comes to the Shiseido Gallery ready to take off on a new journey toward “rebirth.”
