The Hara Museum is pleased to announce that it will hold the exhibition Vincent Gallo Retrospective 1977-2002. In 1999, Gallos movie Buffalo 66 catapulted him to fame in Japan. Since then, Gallos keen sensitivity, sublime expression, and uncompromising dedication to his private aesthetic have captured the imagination of a great many youths for whom he has become a charismatic figure.
As the artists first major retrospective, this exhibition features some 120 artworks, carefully selected from the 500 or so paintings, drawings, and photographs that he produced between 1977 and 2002.
As the title indicates, this exhibition spans the artists entire career as a painter, from his early works made before the start of his career in New York to his most recent works. Together, they provide an excellent overview of Gallos maturation as an artist and the development of his rare eye for beauty through 20 years of continuous self-confrontation.
