Opening Friday night (November 9th) at the Ivory & Black in Soho is Hiro Kurata’s This Land Was Your Land. This exhibition will be the Japanese artist’s first solo in London and will highlight his interpretation of the traditional Western approaches to portraiture and still life with particular attention paid to symbols of wealth and power. “His imaginary heroes – the “Baseball sluggers” – are figures embodied of symbols that reflect the cultural and racial conflict in the modern Western Society, and his confusion between the concepts of race and culture in America.”
