After returning from years of war coverage, Peter van Agtmael tries to piece together the memory, identity, race, class, and family, in a landscape which has become as surreal as the war he left behind.
Taka Ishii Gallery continues to maintain and develop an exhibition program based upon the dual goals of introducing international contemporary artists within Japan and serving as an international platform for the presentation of the work of Japanese emerging artists and contemporary masters. While the gallery aesthetic is rooted in the photographic, the program is contemporary and represented artists work in a variety of media. A yearly exhibition program of ten exhibitions is supplemented by the publication of catalogs and artists’ books, with an emphasis on the documentation and promotion of the work of emerging Japanese artists. In addition to the primary exhibition space, Taka Ishii Gallery Photography / Film focuses on historical exhibitions of pre and postwar Japanese photography and related film work.
