Thursday at Philadelphia Photo Arts Center.
Thursday from 6:30 – 8pm for an opening reception and talk by Tetsugo Hyakutake.
Silent Existence by Tetsugo Hyakutake is the inaugural show of PPAC’s project space. This work was made in the aftermath of the earthquake that devastated Japan in 2011 and this exhibition honors its one-year anniversary.
Over the years, Hyakutake has worked with Japan as the theme of his art, investigating pathos in relation to historical, social, and economic issues involving industrialization and urban and social development.
Through his artwork, Hyakutake create what he calls his own “truth” formed from the influences and experiences he has absorbed. His images attempt to portray only one version, but by doing so, he hopes to be able to bring out other meaningful “truths” that may lie deep inside the audience.
In partnership with Gallery 339 and Alan Klotz Gallery, PPAC will sell two disctinct prints by Tetsugo Hyakutake during the course of his exhibition at PPAC. 100% of the proceeds from print sales will go to the Japan Society.
I look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
From Sarah Stolfa, executive Director.
Now this is an opening, however from what I can understand is that you should rsvp first and there is a $15 charge, which goes to the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund so one should not feel bad about paying that. Be sure to go to their website here for more information.
