Yasumasa Morimura: Ego Obscura
Oct 12-Jan 13
Ego Obscura highlights Yasumasa 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, for 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, Ego Symposion and his latest cinematic installation Nippon-cha-cha-cha, in conjunction with a live performance staged by the artist on the opening weekend. Yasumasa Morimura: Ego Obscura. Opening Oct 12.
