Shuji Terayama and Daido Moriyama Exhibition
This event has ended.
A collaboration of Shuji Terayama's only full-length novel "Aa, Arano" and Moriyama Daido's visionary pictures of that time. With keywords like 'the sixties', 'underground', and 'Shinjuku', the world they strived to depict is back more than it has ever been. Logos Gallery picks up on this trend to give a detailed view on their scenery of the 1960s Shinjuku wasteland.
This project will be their first collaboration since the publication of "Japan, A Photo Theater" in 1968. With the re-publishing of "Aa, Arano" (1966) by Parco Publishing in December, Logos aims to shed more light on both avant-gardist charismas who have been of great influence for Japanese youth.
Daido Moriyama did the cover photography for Shuji Terayama's "Aa, Arano", a story about Barikan, a lonesome boxer in the Shinjuku of the 1960s, and has continued to take pictures of Shinjuku for over 40 years now. Parco Publishing's new version of "Aa, Arano" contains 211 original pictures by Moriyama. Logos has selected 50, each accompanied by Shuji Terayama's words taken from the original "Aa, Arano".
