Paris : Nobuyoshi Araki at the Musée Guimet


Presenting the first retrospective in France devoted to Nobuyoshi Araki means a lot to the Musée Guimet, intended by its founder Emile Guimet in 1889 as a window onto Asia in Paris. It’s in the collections of the National Museum of Asian Art that we find the keys to understanding Araki’s genius, his complexity and his roots. The exhibition presents, as well as some 400 of the master’s works made between 1965 and 2016, some Japanese erotic photographs of the 19th century that show the singular work of Araki, particularly the hojojutsu, the martial art of bondage, in a historical iconographical context and from a cultural perspective.
