On a beautiful summer day in July we were thrilled to have the opportunity to travel to T-Space, famed architect Steven Holl’s sublime space in Rhinebeck, NY. The occasion was to film one of our favorite artists, Hiroyuki Hamada, speaking with art critic Robert C. Morgan, on the occasion of Hamada’s exhibition at T-Space Recent Works (August 22-October 31, 2020). As per COVID the space will not be open to the public. As such it was our duty to both capture the inspiration of the space; the captivating essentialness of Hamada’s work and the critical gaze of Morgan and Hamada’s conversation. We hope you enjoy this tour of the exhibition, view into Hamada’s practice, and 21st century art historical framework which Morgan places the conversation within.
