"William Eggleston: Paris-Kyoto"

Last night the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art inaugurated the exhibition of William Eggleston’s photographs and drawings—the artist’s first solo museum show in Japan. The majority of the work on view comes from the two recent series shot in Paris and Kyoto respectively. Among the photographs are light jet prints and type-C prints, many framed together with a pendant drawing. One of the galleries is devoted entirely to the 1976 William Eggleston’s Guide shown the same year at the MoMA in New York. The Hara exhibition is backed by two collections: the Cartier Foundation and of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. The show will be open through August 22. If you visit on Sunday you can take advantage of the “BloomBus” shuttle that runs between the museum and the Shinagawa station.
