Hiroshi Sugimoto

Carol Franc Buck Gallery | Floor 2

Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948, Tokyo, Japan) explores themes of history and temporal existence through the medium of photography. His interest in art began at a young age when he discovered the writings of French Surrealist author and poet André Breton, which led to his subsequent interest in the work of Dada artist Marcel Duchamp. Sugimoto’s creative philosophy is informed by his ongoing investigation of time, memory, and metaphysics. This exhibition features selections from three of his most prominent ongoing photographic series: Dioramas (1976–), Theaters (1978–), and Seascapes (1980–).

Sugimoto’s work is in the collections of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; The National Gallery, London; The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; Smithsonian Institute of Art, Washington, D.C., and Tate, London, among many others. Sugimoto lives and works in New York and Tokyo.
