Kota Ezawa: The Crime of Art

12 March–1 December 2019

Exhibition Overview

Kota Ezawa, Exquisite Corpse, 2017. Stills from single channel color video, presented as a large scale video projection.

This exhibition will bring together new and recent works related to Ezawa’s The Crime of Art series, a group of light-boxes and video animations that chronicle some of the most infamous and high profile museum heists in history. At the heart of this exhibition is a series of images that pays homage to the 13 artworks — including those by Degas, Manet, Rembrandt, and Vermeer — stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990. The exhibition is accompanied by a publication that surveys Ezawa’s career using crime as a topical lens, published by Radius Books.
