Cahiers d'Art celebrates the 100th issue of the revue with Hiroshi Sugimoto.
The issue, a true tribute to Sugimoto, is rooted in The World is Dead Today, a story written by Sugimoto for his exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo (through September, 7), in which his photographic works are juxtaposed against his eclectic antiques collection recounting the end of modernity.
Issue No.1 2014 is a rare opportunity to see unpublished works reproduced at the highest standard.
Serpentine Gallery co-director Hans Ulrich Obrist interviewed Sugimoto for the issue and Akiko Miki, Chief Curator, Palais de Tokyo, has contributed an important text on the artist’s work.
The issue also includes an essay from Daniel Birnbaum on Ulf Linde’s exploration of the mathematical dimensions to Duchamp’s œuvre in addition to a reprint of an archival article from a 1929 Cahiers d'Art presentation on Brancusi’s work, including photographs and a statement written by Brancusi accompanied by a text from surrealist playwright Roger Vitrac.
Cahiers d'Art celebrated its 100th issue of the Cahiers d'Art revue since its beginnings in 1926, with Hiroshi Sugimoto.
On the occasion of the release of this 100th issue, Cahiers d'Art presented an exhibition of a selection of Sugimoto’s photographs from his latest and unreleased “Pre-Photography Time-Recording Devices” and “Early Modern” series at its Paris gallery space and published exclusively in the revue.
