The 140th Exhibition Hachiro Suzuki:8RO ART & AD January 12(Mon.) - 31(Sat.),1998

The opening of 1998. It was a year marking the opening of many things. It was snow in the morning. The glass in the entryway was fogged over taking us into the world of the Seshu's black and white painting of the Nagano Winter Olympics poster (in English, French and Japanese). Just then, in an NBS interview, they were saying that Nagano at this time was just like "a boat in the snow" (=Seshu) so they hoped the people of the world would get on board. And this morning, here in Ginza, everything is covered with snow. I am deeply grateful to GGG for planning this exhibition here with such perfect timing. Exhibiting the series of 30 years of advertisements marks a great epoch and it makes me very happy that Mr. Yoshitoshi Kitajima of Dai Nippon Printing and Mr. Yotaro Kobayashi of Xerox shortened the long blank in an instant by looking at the advertisements of that time with the smiles of that time. The life of this man is finally controlled by the number 8. This is a happy beginning to 1998.
