This collection of photography showcases work from Provoke, a Tokyo-based magazine from the 1960s. It garnered critical acclaim for being a ground-breaking, progressive publication despite its short-lived run, and this is the first exhibit in the world to tell Provoke’s complete story. In conjunction with this exhibit will be Takuma Nakahira: Circulation, reviving an old Art Institute darkroom displayed with pictures printed from the original negatives. It runs during the same dates as Provoke.
