Catherine Couturier Gallery is pleased to share AIPAD's upcoming series entitled AIPAD Talks featuring noted curators, collectors, artists, and writers. Among the speakers will be curators from the Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; and High Museum, Atlanta. The new AIPAD Talks series, which for the first time are not being held during the annual fair in April, are a continuation of the talks and education programs presented by AIPAD over its four decade history.

The virtual schedule launches on January 23, 2021 with former Tate photography curator Simon Baker, now director of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, who will discuss his upcoming exhibition on two leading photographers from Japan, Daido Moriyama and Shomei Tomatsu.

The AIPAD Talks will be held via Zoom and will also be streamed live on AIPAD's Facebook page and are free to the public. Advance registration is required for Zoom.   

January 23, 2021, 1 p.m. EST
Oh Tokyo! Moriyama, Tomatsu, and Photography in Japan Speaker: Simon Baker, Director, Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP)
Simon Baker will introduce the MEP's upcoming exhibition Moriyama - Tomatsu: Tokyo and discuss these leading figures of Japanese photography in a broader context, highlighting their relationship, their inspiration, and their influence. Conceived originally by Daido Moriyama and Shomei Tomatsu themselves, this collaborative exhibition remained unrealized during the lifetime of Tomatsu. Through a major overview of the works of both Moriyama and Tomatsu, the exhibition highlights a shared fascination with the Japanese capital that both artists spent decades exploring.
