For a one-year period from November 2010, the Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art (MIMOCA) will host a cycle of four Hiroshi Sugimoto exhibitions, each showcasing works by the artist thematically contextualized under the headings “Science,” “Architecture,” “History” and “Religion” so as to present a comprehensive panorama of the artist’s oeuvre.

Starting from his efforts as a photographer in the mid-1970s, Sugimoto’s rigorously conceptual and technically flawless works along various lines of inquiry have continually surprised and delighted viewers the world over. Now these four distinct exhibitions, inclusive of new works as well as pieces from his own collection that have inspired him, take us on a journey back via the wellsprings of Sugimoto’s creativity to the origins of art and thereon to the origins of human consciousness itself. The project, as profound as it is vast, is sure to open eyes and minds.
