Kota Ezawa: The Crime of Art


Featured image is reproduced from 'Kota Ezawa: The Crime of Art.'

The Crime of Art looks at San Francisco–based artist Kota Ezawa’s (born 1969) oeuvre using crime as a lens.

The book presents photographs and reproductions from Ezawa’s recent exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York and Amherst featuring remakes of paintings stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. In addition, the book draws connections from his current project to other work from the early 2000s to the present that contemplates crime. Among them are his animated films The Simpson Verdict (2002) and The Unbearable Lightness of Being (2005), as well as his ongoing drawing series The History of Photography Remix, which includes hand-drawn re-creations of historic crime-scene photography. While focusing on a single subject, The Crime of Art brings attention to some of Ezawa’s key projects from the last 15 years, and coincides with a solo exhibition at SITE Santa Fe in 2017.

Revisiting the most spectacular unsolved art heist of all time with Kota Ezawa's 'The Crime of Art'

Revisiting the most spectacular unsolved art heist of all time with Kota Ezawa's 'The Crime of Art'

On this day in 1990, a pair of thieves disguised as police officers pulled the greatest art heist in world history, stealing 13 works by artists such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Manet and Degas from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. In just 81 minutes, the thieves cut numerous paintings, including Rembrandt’s only known seascape and Vermeer's 1664 "The Concert," from their frames, grabbed an ancient Chinese beaker and a bronze eagle finial, and made off with a host of framed works by Degas and Manet. All told, these works are valued at more than $500 million; this remains the largest and most perplexing unsolved art theft in world history. Sophie Calle devoted the book Ghosts to these works (find a copy if you can!), and they are the subject of Kota Ezawa's recent monograh, The Crime of Art. Featured here is Ezawa's 2015 rendition of Vermeer's "The Concert." continue to blog
