poster for Robin Rhode Exhibition

This event has ended.

In Untitled, YoYo (2005), a series of photographs captures Rhode himself giving a lively performance in which he seems to be actually playing with a toy yo-yo that has been drawn on a wall in chalk. In this and other examples, Rhode's work has been characterized by his embrace of the expressive techniques of youthful "street culture," including the use of graffiti, drawing, performance, and music in photographic and video-media pieces full of playfulness.
After garnering considerable attention at La Biennale di Venezia in Venice, Italy in 2005, Rhode made his debut in Japan at the Yokohoma Triennial. Also in 2005, his work, recognized for its particularly fresh contributions to the development of photographic art, was selected for inclusion in that year's New Photography exhibit, held annually since 1985 by the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York.
With such achievements, Rhode's continues to flourish as one of today's most remarkable and noticed young artists. The Shiseido Gallery's Robin Rhode will offer the first opportunity in Japan to enjoy a multidimensional perspective on Rhode's work that reflects both what he has done so far and some of the directions his work may take in the future.

Robin Rhode at the Shiseido Gallery

Sometimes there are exhibitions that you know you want to see from the moment you come across the poster: it only takes one image to tell you that the rest of the exhibition will be great.

Junko Okada tablog review


この展覧会は、日本で初めて開催されるロビン・ロードの個展である。2005年のベネチア・ビエンナーレで注目を集めた彼の作品《New Kids on the Bike》(2002)は、一種のアニメーションだと言っていいだろう。
