Rinko Kawauchi: Illuminance will open at the Gallery at Hermès on 20 May, 2011 and run through 16 July, 2011. This will be the first time this work has been exhibited in a solo show in the United States. Along with the Hermès exhibition, Aperture will release a full illustrated catalogue, which will be the first time Kawauchi's work will be published outside of Japan.
To celebrate this release, Aperture will be hosting an artist talk and book signing on Wednesday 18 May, 2011 in New York City, where Kawauchi will discuss her previously unpublished images with Aperture's Book Publisher Lesley Martin.
