Daido Moriyama – “The Silk Screen Workshop” (2012)


On December 15th, 2012, Polka Galerie had the honour to host Daido Moriyama for an extraordinary event: The Silkscreen Workshop.

During an entire afternoon, the Japanese master, who came to Paris especially for this, helped the workshop participants create a silkscreen. In an atmosphere reminiscent of a factory, the “apprentice-for-a-day” chose one of five photographs taken by Daido Moriyama in Paris between 1988 and 1989 and exhibited at the gallery in November 2012.

The workshop echoes the current exhibition: “Sérigraphies”. Thirty large silkscreens printed on canvases are shown for the first time in Europe at Polka Galerie until January 12th, 2013 (the exhibition has been extended until February 9th, 2013).
