A Conversation with Daido Moriyama


Saturday, April 7, 2012 | 4 pm | Art Catalogues Bookstore, LACMA

In conjunction with LACMA's current exhibition, Fracture: Daido Moriyama, photographer Daido Moriyama, architect Kulapat Yantrasast, and Edward Robinson, LACMA associate curator of photography, discuss the gritty erotics of Japanese urban life. Providing a harsh, crude vision of city life and the chaos of everyday existence, strange worlds, and unusual characters, Moriyama’s photos express a fascination with the cultural contradictions of age-old traditions that persist within modern society, along with the effects of westernization and consumerism.
