Hiroshi Sugimoto: On Photography and Japanese Art

Thursday, November 30, 2023
6:30 – 8PM

Hiroshi Sugimoto, one of Japan’s most important contemporary artists, will join Asia Society Museum Director Yasufumi Nakamori for a conversation exploring Sugimoto’s photography, his current exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London, and the impact of historical Japanese arts, such as tea culture and calligraphy, on his current artistic practice.

Sugimoto will discuss his new work, “Brush Impression,” unpacking how the pandemic has influenced his signature artistic approach: calligraphic brushstrokes on photographic paper in a dark room setting.
