Season Three featured artist Hiroshi Sugimoto (b. 1948) is the subject of a retrospective that opened at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, CA last Saturday. Featured in the exhibition are more than 100 photographs made over the last thirty years. This presentation, in an installation designed by Sugimoto, is the first major survey of Sugimoto’s work. It is organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., and the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo.

The exhibition includes examples from the 1970s series, Dioramas and Movie Theaters, as well as images from Seascapes and Portraits, from the 1980s and 1990s, respectively. The show also presents Sea of Buddha (1995); Sugimoto’s more recent Architecture series; and images from his current series, Conceptual Forms (both included in his Art in the Twenty-First Century segment).

Hiroshi Sugimoto runs from July 7, 2007 — September 23, 2007. For more information, click here.
