Graphic Wave 2005


I don’t mention the monthly GGG exhibitions much because I automatically visit them (remember, I use this site as a reminder of things I want to see), but I should point out that September sees the “Graphic Wave 2005” show, which you’ll probably want to see.

In September 2005 the Ginza Graphic Gallery will hold the Graphic Wave 2005 exhibition, featuring the works of Ichiro Tanida, Ichiro Higashiizumi and Chie Morimoto. Ichiro Tanida is a topliner director of advertising commercials and video creator. Ichiro Higashiizumi explores the potential of design by transcending the boundaries of genre, ranging from CD jackets and video through product design to spatial design. Art director Chie Morimoto has added her individual touch to numerous advertisements and editorial works, constructing her own unique universe in the process.

The gallery’s Graphic Wave series began in 1996 and this year’s exhibition marks the 10th anniversary of the series. This exhibition brings together three of the currently most talked-about creative talents in Japan for an exhibition that will be unique to each of them and unlike any previous Graphic Wave exhibition. We are also publishing Graphic Wave 10, which interweaves 30 keywords with representative works by the three exhibitors. Up-and-coming photographer Akinori Ikeda took the photographs for this new Graphic Wave publication. (TAB)

It starts today, and goes until September 29.
