— 10×10 Photobooks

Print & Play: Japanese Photobooks

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 6-9pm
ICP-Bard Studios


On view at the ICP-Bard Studios during the New York Art Book Fair at PS1 MoMA, will be two pop-up exhibitions highlighting contemporary Japanese photography and photobooks.

10×10 will present a reading room of photobooks by young Japanese photographers from the past 10 years. The selection will reflect holdings from the International Center of Photography’s vast collection of Japanese photobooks and present an overview of the diverse photographic voices now gaining attention in Japan. Included among the more than 30 photobooks on view will be books by Daisuke Yokota, Shimpei Takeda, Sakiko Nomura, Hiroshi Takizawa and Yusuke Yamatani.

In addition, Daisuke Yokota, an emerging Japanese photographer who received the John Kobal Residency Award at Photo London 2015, will present a selection of abstract color photographs in his first American exhibition organized by Harper’s Books (East Hampton, NY) and Flying Books (Tokyo). Known for his interdisciplinary and energetic approach to art and book making, Yokota is helping to redefine the image in the post-photography era. The Opening for the Yokota show will coincide with Print & Play: Japanese Photobooks.
