VICE, a global youth company that operates in 35 countries, originally launched VICE Magazine in 1994 as a free magazine in Montreal, Canada. The magazine’s acerbic language and outstanding uniqueness has generated a huge youth following. In particular, its annual Photo Issue disappears off the streets a mere days after its street date, leaving many fans empty-handed. This year, the legendary Photo Issue is coming to Japan.
The theme for this year is “collaborations”. Featured in the issue are world-renowned artists such as Kim Gordon, Roger Ballen and Richard Kern, up-and-comers like Sandy Kim, Asger Carlsen and Arvida Byström, and Japanese artists including Masaru Tatsuki, Jin Ohashi, KYOTARO, Keiichi Nitta, Shintaro Kago, and Motoyuki Daifu. In this unprecedented global collaboration, photographers on the frontlines of the industry have joined forces with artists from all quarters.
DIESEL ART GALLERY will present GLOBAL PHOTO COLLABORATIONS, an exhibition commemorating the release of the Japanese edition of the VICE Photo Issue. Displayed will be works by 28 artists featured in the issue, as well as behind-the-scenes footage in which artists discuss how their collaborations came about, and their joint creative processes. Come and experience this truly one-of-a-kind photography exhibition, curated by VICE JAPAN.
