JAPAN SOCIETY PRESENTS HIROSHI SUGIMOTO IN CELEBRATION OF ITS 110-YEAR ANNIVERSARY

On the occasion of its 110th anniversary, marked May 19, 2017, Japan Society is pleased to announce the world premiere of Hiroshi Sugimoto: Gates of Paradise, an exhibition commemorating one of the earliest documented moments of cross-cultural exchange between Japan and the West. On view from October 20, 2017 to January 7, 2018, the inspiring exhibition will unveil a new series by the artist while also juxtaposing his monumental black-and-white photographs of early modern European art and architecture with traditional Japanese artworks lent from the world's top collections. Together, this innovative display will  illustrate the captivating story of four boys who, in the late sixteenth century, were among the first Japanese to travel to Europe.
