CCK & The Barbican: Nobuyoshi Araki evening

cck pr timeline 2005 barbican6 October
Our first collaboration with a major arts institution, to complement the Araki: Self. Life. Death exhibition, featuring the works of Nobuyoshi Araki, arguably Japan's greatest living photographer (and certainly its most controversial). We organise and host a Japanese evening, complete with Japanese cakes, geishas and bondage by Nawashi Murakawa. Tomoko Sato, the curator of Araki's first UK exhibition, gives a talk at CCK... and is delighted to witness real-life Shibari for the first time (something she didn't have a chance to experience, despite a lifelong collaboration with the artist and decking the Barbican out in his erotic rope work photography)!
