The traveling retrospective exhibition of works by Hiroshi Sugimoto (Season 3) is on view at the Museum of Art Lucerne in Switzerland through January 25, 2009. The artist has designed the exhibition, previously at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, specially for the conditions of the current venue.

Sugimoto’s work is also included in Modern Photographs: The Machine, the Body and the City, Selections From the Charles Cowles Collection, a collection of vintage and contemporary photographs at the Parrish Art Museum through November 30; and Reality Check: Truth and Illusion in Contemporary Photography, an installation of works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s permanent collection.

Opening tomorrow at Gagosian Gallery in New York City, Seven Days/Seven Nights will display fourteen photographs from Sugimoto’s Seascapes series in an architectural setting of the artist’s own design. The exhibition closes December 20.

Watch Sugimoto discuss the series in this excerpt from Art:21.
