This event has ended.

“Intentions” is the first solo exhibition of Brooklyn-based artist Rey Parlá in Tokyo, presenting his latest works in photography and film produced in Tokyo and New York City.
Parlá is interested in the duality of the inner and outer worlds of human existence; the gray bridge that binds any life or the ambiguity of an inanimate object, and how perceptions of art may be interpreted, contemplated, adapted, or documented between these. Parlá references the framework of avant-garde aesthetics and the historical canon of photography as his medium. He does with without placing any limitation on their pluralistic meanings or the democratic and “borderless” mix of unorthodox technologies.
The exhibition is a continuation and expansion of themes that factored in Parlá’s well-received “Borderless” show in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The study of line, luminosity, abstraction, self-examination, self-reflection of photographic objects, concrete pictorial conditions, and their possibilities are further explored here. The photographs on exhibit here are to be considered objects – they only represent themselves and not the real world; the works are photographs about photography.
