Tadashi Moriyama (MFA '06) in Exhibit at Bonelli ArteContemporanea, Italy, Opening October 3, 6:30-pm

Tadashi Moriyama will exhibit in a show titled Amnesiac at Bonelli ArteContemporanea in Mantova, Italy. The exhibition catalog essay is written by Eric Shiner, Milton Fine Curator of Art at the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh.

The stories behind Tadashi's series are based on themes of creation and subsequent destruction of cities, memories, space and time. Technological devices and digital media function as manipulators and instigators of fear, death and hopeful renewal. Amnesiac is about a hero “who lives in a city where buildings imitate each other to extreme sameness and continue to grow with expanding tentacles that eats the sun and defecates the moons. The hero struggles with the loss of his original home.”

The artist uses inspirations and influences from Indian miniature painting, Buddhist and Hindu paintings, 15-16th century Italian painting and Alchemist paintings as well experiences in Tokyo and New York to build these non-sustainable systems of structures and memory.

Opening Reception: October 3, 6:30pm
Exhibition Dates: October 3 – November 6, 2009
