Click to enlargeSHUHEI YAMADA IN CONVERSATION WITH JEREMY MILLAR
Mar 19, 2019 6:00pm - 7:00pm talk/event
On the occasion of his artist talk, Shuhei Yamada will discuss his ‘untitled yet’ exhibition with Jeremy Millar, Senior Tutor Critical Practice within the Contemporary Art Practice and Tutor in Art Criticism at the Royal College of Art.
In his early works, Yamada focuses on eliminating from images the key objects that enable the viewer to easily understand them. Yamada suggests that viewers should read various meanings into his art. After the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, he became interested in exploring the absurdities of the society that surrounds us.
In recent years, his work has included not only photography and videos, but also 3D art and installations.
