Produced in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name at Ameringer McEnery Yohe gallery in New York, May 26th — July 1st, 2016.
This body of work was made in response to Brian Alfred's month long trip to Japan to research on a project for Japan Railways to create animations for the Genbi Shinkansen, a high-speed railway service. The title of the show references Jun’ichirō Tanizaki’s celebrated book of 1933, In Praise of Shadows.
The book is printed in risograph, all of the artist's works are printed in offset. The publication features an essay by Sarah K. Rich and a conversation between the artist and the director of the Andy Warhol Museum, Eric Shiner.
