"Travel Companions: Aerograms from Tatsuhiko Shibusawa and Seiichi Horiuchi" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Tatsuhiko Shibusawa and Seiichi Horiuchi first met in 1958. Horiuchi has just founded the Ad Center the previous year and was a young up-and-coming designer, while Shibusawa was a scholar of French literature who attracted much attention for his research on sadism. For some time they had no points of connections workwise, meeting occasionally to drink and chat. That changed when they worked together on the magazine "Blood and Roses," a collaboration that was to deepen their relationship considerably.
A scholar of obscure French literature, essayist, author, and a graphic designer himself fairly abstruse, picture book author and illustrator. The letters on display at this exhibition reveal an intimacy between the two men rarely glimpsed, and casting light on the ways they complemented each other.
