My images of tattooed people has entered brick-wall museums again!
Several of my new images of the young Japanese guys from tattoo conventions in Aichi (Japan) have entered exhibition in Las Vegas.
I started to exhibit my images in 2014 in the Museum de Branly , located in Paris, which ran 14 month exhibition. It was a great start which helped to start a series of art exhibitions in brick-wall museums, who showed their interest about my work.
The Royal Ontario Museum ran the exhibition in Toronto in 2016.
The Field Museum ran the exhibition in Chicago in 2017.
And there is 2019. Three more exhibitions are scheduled.
Two exhibitions has been already opened. One in Prague and another one in Las Vegas.
Prague Exhibition has been opened in Institute of International Relations. It is going to be open through Feb. 28, 2019 and it features images of victims from tsunami damaged areas in Tohoku (Japan) in 2011, including also images taken in lost cities near the crippled Nuclear Power Plant at Fukushima prefecture. These places still suffered from high radiation and local people are not going to returned to their homes any time soon.
Second exhibition in POP Vegas, a culture exhibition space owned by Caesars Entertainment in Las Vegas shows very different images. It shows number of images from several tattoo conventions in Aichi (Japan). It shows also some images from Tokyo Sanja festival, traditional Japanese festival where tattooed guys including Japanese Yakuza participate. Web pages of the event will come soon.
Check it later this month!
All images are projected on 15 meter walls.
Within the time of the exhibition, the organizer expect 150K visitors.
The third exhibition of this year is going to be open in Vesterheim Museum in Iowa in June.
The most of exhibited images are in the books “Tattoo in Japan” or “Horikazu, traditional tattoo master from Asakusa”.
