Hiroshi Sugimoto: End of Time is a survey of the Japanese artistís photographic work, made from the 1970s until the present. It includes Sugimoto's best-known works, such as the Dioramas, which he photographed, in life-like detail, at natural history and other museums; Seascapes, depicting oceans around the world; Theatres, for which he sets his exposure times to the length of the film showing; and other series: Portraits, Architecture, Sea of Buddha and Conceptual Forms.

The exhibition also includes the artistís most recent experiments: fusions of photography with architecture and traditional Noh theatre. Colors of Shadow, a new series of color photographs of changing light in the artistís studio, will have its world premiere. The exhibition is designed by Sugimoto and incorporates a Noh stage, on which a Noh play will be performed. Visitors can also hear a sound installation created by Sugimoto in collaboration with sound artist Ikeda Ryoji.

The exhibition will travel to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C., and other venues in 2006.
