Mental note: never read/Instapaper another essay by Clayton Cubitt
I wrote a couple of paragraphs over there about why this is such an important work, but there’s still a lot more to say. If you are looking for an early contender for “best book of 2013,” the conversation probably starts and ends here!
Keiji Uematsu’s exhibit at Yumiko Chiba Associates 1 in Shinjuku, up until 6/8, is excellent. YCA not a large space but Uematsu’s mix of photography and sculpture matches it well. I’ve already been twice, and I’ll try to go back again.
Wataru Yamamoto will hold an exhibition of “Drawing a Line” at photographers’ gallery 1 in Shinjuku, from 6/4 – 6/16. The exhibit will serve as a (somewhat belated) celebration of the publication of his book with MCV MCV 2.
Wataru and I will have a talk event on Saturday, June 8 starting from 4pm, and there will be an opening reception from 6pm.
