The 181st Exhibition Kazunari Hattori Summer 2011 in Osaka
July 13, 2011 - September 02, 2011
We are pleased to announce that ddd Gallery are opening an exhibition `Kazunari Hattori Summer 2011 in Osaka’ in July 2011.
Kazunari Hattori has consistently produced numerous works of graphic design full of appeal on their own. Expressing himself through a variety of different media, Hattori’s works include one-of-a-kind advertisements such as those done for Kewpie Half Mayonnaise, innovative art direction work for magazines including `here and there’ and `Mayonaka’, striking book designs centering on aspects such as expression through print characters and geometrical shapes, and art-exhibition-related designs instilled with a superb sense of balance. In recent years, Hattori has continued to present experimental pieces through individual and group exhibitions in pursuit of new possibilities of expression.
This exhibition would not only display many of Hattori’s representative works, but also original works created specially for this event. We hope it will enable you to experience Kazunari Hattori’s world here and now as of July 2011.
Additionally, the magazine “here and there” and its posters will be shown at the exhibition held simultaneously at Center for COSMIC WONDER in Nishiku Shinmachi.
