"Myths and Game"
Through July 30th
In tribute to the upcoming Olympics in Athens, Tepper Takayama Fine Arts' summer exhibition is "Myths and Games" featuring works by Milton Montenegro, Daido Moriyama, Paolo Rosselli, Hiromi Tsuchida and others.
Milton Montenegro's "Nebulae" series comprises avant-garde, partially digitally created, partially photographed recreations of Greek gods and demi-gods.
Athena, goddess of wisdom, is interpreted as regal and imposing, while Icarus is poised to take off in flight, before his ultimate fall.
Daido Moriyama reflects his nation's fanatic devotion to baseball in his characteristically irreverent and oblique manner, photographing a poster of a baseball game.
Paolo Rosselli's cool, elegant work captures the awe-inspiring power of the Parthenon whose columns diminish its tourists and the breadth and sumptuousness of Sravana Belgola, an Indian Shrine which is a repository of multiple myths.
The works of artists Yoshi Abe, Evandro Teixiera, Robert Welsh, Cassio Vasconcellos, and George S. Zimbel complete the exhibition, which focuses on the enduring allure of myths and games in this summer of the Olympic games.
