About

For over three decades, Japanese artist Yasumasa Morimura has been exploring cultural and sexual appropriation, through his images dealing with image consumption, identity and desire. With extensive use of props, costumes, make-up, and digital manipulation, he transforms himself into recognizable characters, ranging from Brigitte Bardot, Jane Fonda, and Marilyn Monroe, to the Mona Lisa or Vermeer’s “girl with the pearl earring.” The resulting images challenge the associations that viewers have with the subjects, while also commenting on Japan’s complex absorption of Western culture. Morimura has had solo exhibitions in Japan at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, the Yokohama Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Tokyo. His works are also found in many American museum collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Getty Museum, Los Angeles, the Museum of Fine Art, Boston, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
