Please join Asia Society Texas Center for a members-only tour of Ruptures and Continuities: Photography Made After 1960 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Yasufumi Nakamori, Assistant Curator of Photography, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, will lead the tour.
The exhibition explores new directions and approaches to the photographic process. All 200 works come from the MFAH collection and were selected by Nakamori, who curated the exhibition.
According to Nakamori, the show explores the influence of Minimalism, Performance Art and other such movements of the 1960s on the changing process of photography. The exhibition illuminates how these new directions in the general art scene of the time changed the conceptualization of the photo-making process as well.
The exhibition is organized around five themes: self-performance; directorial mode and constructed environments; the transformation of the city; new landscape; and memory and archive. It features more than 80 artists from 20 countries. The Asia Society tour will focus on artists from Asian nations, including: Seung Woo Back (Korea), Dinh Q. Lê (Vietnam), Osamu James Nakagawa (Japan) and Hatakeyama Naoya (Japan).
Please meet in the lobby of the Beck building at 7:15 p.m. so that we may begin on time.
We are grateful to the MFAH and Yasufumi Nakamori for this opportunity.
