OT: Tetsuya Ishida Self-portrait of Other


P1020606Organized by Museo Reina Sofía, the exhibition Tetsuya Ishida Self-portrait of Other will be on show at Palacio Velazquez in Madrid’s Retiro Park, from 11 April to 8 September, 2019, in collaboration with Halsted A&A Foundation at Wrightwood 659, Chicago.

Tetsuya Ishida Self-portrait of Other is the first retrospective exhibition of the work of Tetsuya Ishida (Yaizu, Shizuoka, 1973 – Tokyo, 2005) to be held outside Japan. It brings together a significant selection of his oeuvre, from 1996, the year he finished his degree in fine art at Musashino University, Tokyo, to 2004, shortly before his sudden death. His painting, drawings, and notebooks are an extraordinary testimony to the malaise and alienation of contemporary subjects in advanced capitalism. A cult artist in his own country, where his imaginary world has become a reference for younger generations, his sharply critical work was presented in Europe at the 56 Venice Biennale in 2015.
