Hiroshi Sugimoto Sets Paris Exhibits

The Japanese artist will be the subject of two exhibitions in Paris next fall.

REVOLUTIONARY ROAD: Hiroshi Sugimoto is traveling across France with his “Revolution” series.

From Oct. 15 to 25, jeweler Boucheron will exhibit the Japanese artist’s large-format black-and-white photographs at its flagship store on Place Vendôme in Paris, in tandem with its new Hôtel de la Lumière fine jewelry collection.

The “Revolution” prints are currently on show in the southern city of Arles as part of the annual Les Rencontres d’Arles photo festival.

Boucheron is also supporting Sugimoto’s production of “The Love Suicides at Sonezaki,” a traditional bunraku, or Japanese puppet theater, play at the Théâtre de la Ville from Oct. 10 to 19.

Sugimoto will be the subject of a separate exhibition, “Accelerated Buddha,” at the Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent from Oct. 10, 2013, to Jan. 26, 2014.
