Introducing the exhibition «The Gaze of Things: Japanese Photography in the context of Provoke» by its curators Nuria Enguita and Vicent Todolí.
Between 1957 and 1972, a radical transformation regarding the language of photography took place in Japan, led by a group of photographers who began their production during the post-war era. This renovation happened alongside the great economic, cultural and psycho-social changes of this period, marked by a social confrontation which was mostly directed against the legacy of the American occupation.
The exhibition The Gaze of Things: Japanese Photography in the context of Provoke brings together a selection of images made by Toyoko Tokiwa, Ikkō Narahara, Shōmei Tōmatsu, Eiko Hosoe, Akira Satō, Kikuji Kawada, Hiroshi Hamaya, Takashi Hamaguchi, Nobuyoshi Araki, Yutaka Takanashi, Takuma Nakahira, Daidō Moriyama, Tamiko Nishimura, Ishiuchi Miyako, and Kōji Enokura.
The exhibition, curated by Nuria Enguita and Vicent Todolí, is accompanied by a catalogue, co-produced with La Fábrica, which includes texts by Miryam Sas and Akihito Yasumi. All the works included in this show are part of the Per Amor a l’Art Collection, except for the works by Toyoko Tokiwa (Museum of Yokohoma Urban History) and the series Endless Night, by Ishiuchi Miyako (INELCOM Arte Contemporáneo Collection).
