Hiro Kurata Solo Exhibition At Ivory & Black‏ Soho
Next up at central London gallery Ivory & Black Soho is a new solo exhibition titled "This Land was your Land" featuring the work of Japanese artist Hiro Kurata.
This exhibition presents the artist’s interpretation of the traditional Western approaches to portraiture and still life – two of the most prominent genres of painting throughout the History of Art. In his paintings, Hiro is particularly interested in the symbols of wealth and power – two essential features that he uses both in portraiture and still life, from the ancient Rome to the contemporary age of celebrity. His imaginary heroes – the “Baseball sluggers” – are figures embodied of symbols that reflect the cultural and racial conflict in the modern Western Society, and his confusion between the concepts of race and culture in America.
Private reception with the artist: November 9, 6.30 – 9.00PM – RSVP at
Exhibition: November 9 – December 7, 2012
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 2-8 PM
Ivory&Black Soho - 94 Berwick Street - London - W1F 0QF
