Currently on view at MAI 36 UPSTAIRS, Zurich:
Japanese Photography – 1930s - 1970s
Jun 07 through Aug 03, 2019
We are pleased to present a selection of Japanese Photography in the group exhibition Japanese Photography 1930s- 1970s, in collaboration with Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo.
Mai 36 Galerie has been showing contemporary positions in photography for 30 years, such as Thomas Ruff as well as analogue photography by Roe Ethridge, Luigi Ghirri, Ion Grigorescu, Jitka Hanzlová, Peter Hujar, Robert Mapplethorpe and Torbjørn Rødland.
The global recognition of Japanese art photography has grown dramatically since the 1990s. Audiences worldwide were interested in the way that Japanese photographers, although influenced by Western photographic expression, created their own unique contexts for their practice.
