Daido Hysteric

29 Apr–22 May 2022

From April 29 (Fri) to May 22 (Sun), 2022, Gallery COMMON is pleased to present DAIDO HYSTERIC, a retrospective exhibition based upon photographer Daido Moriyama’s seminal photobook Daido hysteric no. 4. The photograph collection was published by Harajuku fashion brand Hysteric Glamour in 1993, and represents a pioneering crossover between fashion and art that arguably laid the groundwork for the collaborative culture that would come to define Harajuku in the 90s and onwards.

The exhibition will include 48 gelatin silver prints and 9 silkscreen canvases featuring key images from the photobook as well as never-before-seen photographs from the same era that were rediscovered when Moriyama revisited his film archives for this exhibition.
