Media: Photography
(2018-01-27 - 2018-02-25)

This exhibition presenting approximately 100 items from the Yokohama Civic Gallery, Azamino collection is organized around the theme of “Bodies in Photographs.” Since the birth of photography, human bodies have always been a key subject. Depending on who is being photographed, and the presence of the photographer, it is evident that the act of photographing triggers specific behaviors in sitters. As a result, the images produced say a lot about the personality and attributes of their subjects, as well as the spirit of the era during which they are taken. As modernization took hold, photography played an instrumental role in the process of observing, diagnosing and classifying the human body. Here you can explore how the image of the body in photography has developed through various items from the museum collection.

Media: Photography
(2018-01-27 - 2018-02-25)

The eighth Azami Photo Annual exhibition introducing works of contemporary photography spotlights Shingo Kanazawa, who published the photo collection “father” in 2016 and has taken his practice in various directions besides photography. Since 2008 Kanazawa’s “father” series has been documenting his own father, who repeatedly disappears. The series calls into question the meaning of human existence when people vanish from society for no apparent reason. In 2010 Kanazawa started another series focused on his aunt, who disappeared more than 20 years ago. This exhibition focuses on photographs from both of these series, including works that have never been shown before. While reexamining the fundamentals of human existence in which people fulfill promises to society through predetermined roles, these works also prompt us to reconsider the meaning of photography as a medium.

In addition, around 40 new acquisitions will also be on exhibit simultaneously.

In 1983, prior to the opening of the Yokohama Museum of Art, the facility began collecting Surrealist art works. Made up of multiple pieces by central Surrealist figures such as René Magritte, Paul Delvaux, Salvador Dalí, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Hans (Jean) Arp, Joan Miró, and André Masson, the collection conveys the artists’ diverse range of activities, and their efforts to forge into many different genres, including not only oil painting but also collage, sculpture, printmaking, and photography. The works also represent the expansive view of Surrealism, which transcended national and ethnic boundaries by encompassing artists from all over the world such as Roberto Matta (Chile), Óscar Domínguez (Canary Islands), Wilfredo Lam (Cuba), and John Armstrong (U.K.). In addition, the collection contains a rich array of photographs by Man Ray, Hans Bellmer, Jindřich Štyrský, Wols, and others. In this edition of the collection exhibition, making full use of three galleries, viewers will be treated to a virtually complete group of Surrealist works from the museum’s holdings – the first time such an exhibition has ever been attempted at the museum.In conjunction with the “Ishiuchi Miyako: Grain and Image” exhibition, Ishiuchi’s “Yokosuka Story” and other works by the artist from the museum collection in the Photography Gallery are also presented.

Kei Takemura is an artist who attributes new aesthetic value to forgotten objects, past memories, and personal stories through his works such as those comprising the “Restored” series. Here he combined pieces of embroidered thin white cloth with photographs and drawings to produce works that reconstruct and keep a record of personal stories relating to himself and his close friends, and that which has been lost or forgotten. Takemura also temporarily fixes personal items that have been damaged through everyday wear and tear by wrapping them in thin fabric that is then stitched with white silk thread. This exhibition focuses on the individual moments that overlap to create the flow of daily life, and the beauty of time in memoriam. Recently Takemura has produced works that incorporate playing cards sharing universal meanings that function regardless of geographical or linguistic differences. Here you can see the 24 works from the “Playing Cards 2017, Austrian Cards on German Cards” series, where he has embroidered German-made cards with Austrian designs using Japanese silk thread, expressing the transgression of geographic and temporal borders. You can also see pieces from “Playing Dominos in J.City,” which is a series inspired by a card game named “Domino” that the artist first came across this year and is popular in the Indonesian city of Yogyakarta. This is the first time any of these works has been shown publicly.

Ay-O Exhibition

6-1 Nishiku-Minatomirai, Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa 220-8668
Media: Prints
(2018-01-29 - 2018-04-08)

Ay-O started his rainbow series in 1963, creating foregrounds and backgrounds of stripes in the order of the light spectrum from red to purple. The artist went on to produce many other works featuring familiar motifs with rainbow stripes. A 1977 work exhibited at the former World Trade Center featured dangling rainbow-colored clothing; a 1987 rainbow cloth piece at the Eiffel Tower was one of several large-scale displays in a diverse, ongoing lifetime body of work. Along with works from Ay-O’s rainbow series, this exhibition presents the thematically similar “Futatsu, Tai” (Two, Contrasts) series. These eight works are made up primarily of contrasting designs with two hearts or two people embracing. The plurality of these works’ titles (“Trees,” “Hearts,” etc.) emphasizes communication – singular forms would end in egotism. Also displayed are “Denen” and “Sora ni Nabiku Hana” (Flowers Fluttering in the Sky), two early works from before Ay-O’s move to America.

Yoshio Aoyama (1894-1996) lived in Yokosuka until the age of 8. Hoping to become a painter from a young age, he traveled to France in 1921 and was selected for the Salon d’Automne shortly thereafter. He met Matisse, an artist he admired for his use of color, in the South of France when receiving medical treatment there. Returning to Japan in 1935, 27 of his works were well received when presented in a special exhibition by Kokuga-kai Association. Following the war, he continued to produce impressive landscape paintings based on views throughout Cagnes-sur-Mer in the South of France, which he regarded as his second home. Aoyama finally passed away at the age of 102 in 1996. This exhibition looks back over seven decades of his paintings, which continue to wow viewers even 20 years after his death.
