The exhibition brings together Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto's series ranging from the late 1970s to the present, featuring his celebrated early works Theaters and Seascapes, as well as Portraits, Lightning Fields, and his recent multimedia installation, Accelerated Buddha among others. His works show his multidisciplinary scholarly interests in art, history, science, religion, and philosophy of Eastern and Western traditions.

Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948, Tokyo, Japan) has defined what it means to be a multi-disciplined contemporary artist, blurring the lines between photography, painting, installation, and most recently, architecture. His iconic photographs have bridged Eastern and Western ideologies, tracing the origins of time and societal progress along the way. Preserving and picturing memory and time is a central theme of Sugimoto’s photography, including the ongoing series Dioramas (1976– ), Theaters (1978– ), and Seascapes (1980– ).
