EXHIBITION: Yasumasa Morimura: Ego Obscura / New York, NY

10/12/2018 - 01/13/2019

This exhibition will be the first NY institutional solo show by one of Japan's most prolific and versatile contemporary artists, Yasumasa Morimura. Ego Obscura highlights Morimura's 30-year-long project of excavating "the self" from layers of art history, Japanese postwar history, and personal history. In addition to major photographic self-portraits, in which Morimura transformed himself into iconic artistic and pop culture figures, the exhibition will also feature the U.S. premiere of the artist's first full-length video work, Egó Sympósion (2016), as well as his latest cinematic installation Egó Obscura (2018), in conjunction with a live performance of Morimura's Nippon Cha Cha Cha!, staged by the artist on the opening weekend. This exhibition is supported through the Exhibitions Abroad Support Program.

This exhibition takes place on October 12, 2018 through January 13, 2019 at Japan Society, 333 East 47th Street, New York, NY 10017. For more details, please visit Japan Society’s website.

EXHIBITION: Beyond the Pedestal: Isamu Noguchi and the Borders of Sculpture / Portland, ME

10/05/2018 - 01/06/2019

This exhibition explores the Japanese-American modernist's 60-year artistic endeavors to enlarge and challenge conventional notions of sculptural boundaries, endlessly experimenting with the intersection of objects, people, and space. This exhibition brings aspects of his varied production together - from traditional sculpture, stage sets, to play structures - complicating notions of form and function and using the juxtaposition of materials, shapes, and techniques to encourage audiences to reimagine their sense of sculpture. This exhibition is supported through the Exhibitions Abroad Support Program.

This exhibition takes place on October 5, 2018 through January 6, 2019 at Portland Museum of Art, 7 Congress Square, Portland, ME. For more details, please visit Portland Museum Art’s website.
