"Contemporary Photographic Art from Japan".


There's been no shortage of Japanese photography exhibitions of late, but this show has a leg up: Hiromi Nakamura, a curator at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Japan's leading photo venue, made the selection. Nakamura's choices emphasize the breadth of the medium's current uses, from Mariko Mori's latest video installation to Kunie Sugiura's photograms. Among the eleven other artists in the show are several (Naoya Hatakeyama, Hiroshi Sugimoto) who take a more documentary approach. All work with an international audience in mind. Nov. 6-Dec. 19, 1999; travels to Museum Bochum, Jan.-Feb. 2000; Hellescher Kunstverein, Halle, Mar. 26-May 1, 2000; Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe, July-Aug. 2000.
