“Daido Tokyo” at Fondation Cartier in Paris

“Daido Tokyo” opened this month at The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. The exhibition is devoted to the color photography of Daido Moriyama, the Japanese artist primarily known for working in black-and-white.

Moriyama, who has a self-proclaimed addiction to cities, focuses on the narrow and miscellaneous alleys of Shinjuku, his long favored terrain in Tokyo. The images reflect a sense of disordered urban reality and the artist’s penchant for textures, stark contrast, and wavering compositions.

The Fondation also commissioned a new work in conjunction with the show, Dog and Mesh Tights, an immersive multi-screen projection of black-and-white photographs that plunges viewers into the commotion of the contemporary city, capturing fragments of daily life amid the urban hustle.
