Exhibition: Yasumasa Morimura: Theater of the Self at The Andy Warhol Museum / Pittsburgh, PA

10/06/2013 - 01/11/2014

Yasumasa Morimura, renowned for his photographic reprisals of iconic images from art history and popular culture in which he replaces the subjects with his own self-image, will be surveyed at this exhibition. The exhibition will focus on three important bodies of work: "Requiem" in which Morimura recreates iconic photographs relating to political and cultural life; the "Actors" series in which he assumes the persona of Hollywood luminaries such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor; and his "Art History" photographs in which he painstakingly restages well known European paintings.

The 2013 Carnegie International presents new voices rooted in history, a sense of place, and play.

Exhibition: Lethal Beauty:Samurai Weapons and Armor / San Antonio, TX

09/28/2013 - 01/05/2014

Samurai Weapons and Armor offers visitors the opportunity to see the real thing-actual arms and armor made for use by the samurai. Ranging from the thirteenth to twentieth centuries, the 75 objects in the exhibition at San Antonio Museum of Art focus on works from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. Five full sets of armor will be on view, complete with masks and helmets. Remarkable weapons include long and short swords-the oldest of which dates to the 1200s-daggers, and even a few examples of early Japanese rifles. In addition, a brilliantly painted pair of folding screens illustrate samurai battles in the famous warrior epic Tale of Heike.

This exhibition is supported through JFNY Grant for Arts & Culture.
