Shugo Arts
Closes April 28

As an internationally known photographer, model, actor, painter and sculptor, it’s no surprise that Yasumasa Morimura would hold “A Requiem: Art on Top of the Battlefield,” his grand film and photographic reinterpretations of modern history, at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. For these images, we have seen him transform himself into so many famous figures, we might forget to look for his true self. But as Shugo Arts — a much smaller and modest exhibition spot in the Kiyosumi area of Tokyo — is letting us know, there’s always another, perhaps surprising, story.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
