This event has ended.
*Tokyo Photographic Art Museum will be open from June 2.
For “Photography and Fashion”, the fashion editor Hayashi Nakako was invited to serve as supervisor. The exhibition brings together photographs and reference materials from artists in and outside Japan to explore the relationship of photography to fashion, primarily since the 1990s. Photography has long played an essential role in fashion as a medium for communicating the appeal of garments. Indeed, sometimes the images created by photographers are more fascinating than the actual garments: These images come to symbolize an era.
From the 1990s to the present—this multifaceted exhibition is an attempt to examine the relationship of photography to fashion through a variety of perspectives, including the photographs themselves, related reference materials, talk events, and performances.
