New York’s Andrea Rosen Gallery announced today that it now represents multidisciplinary artist Simon Fujiwara. Fujiwara held his first one-person exhibition in New York at Andrea Rosen in 2013 and will see his next exhibitions taking place in Tokyo, at the Obayashi Foundation and Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery in January 2016.
Through performance, painting, video, sculpture, and installation, Fujiwara delves into philosophical ideas of self, particularly as it pertains to our modern, technological age. The Berlin-based artist has shown at the Venice Biennale, São Paulo Biennial, Gwangju Biennial, Shanghai Biennial, and Performa, amongst others. His work is also in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim, and Tate Modern.
Rosen said in a statement. “I am always impressed by the way his work is able to simultaneously hold both content and mystery.”
