Hajime Sorayama Metropolis
June 18th(Fri.) – November 21st(Sun.), 2021
Organizer, Venue: HOW Art Museum (Shanghai, China)
Nanzuka is pleased to announce Hajime Sorayama’s solo exhibition Metropolis at HOW Art Museum, from June 18, 2021. Hajime Sorayama’s work has exerted a wide and profound influence on fields such as advertising, design, film, street art and contemporary art since the 1970s. His ingenious use of airbrush has led to the creation of a series of metallic robots, revealing not only the artist’s aesthetic vision but also his insightful investigation into contemporary issues such as the boundaries of race, eternity of life and the complexity of technology and artificial intelligence. As the first institutional solo exhibition of Hajime Sorayama in China, Metropolis presents works made by the artist from 1970s to now. A holistic picture of the artist’s decades of practice could be perceived from the exhibition through paintings, sculptures and installations selected to be presented. Moreover, some of his recent works will also be on view, including the painting work as a tribute to the classic sci-fi drama movie, Metropolis. The exhibition will run through November 21, 2021.
