Shikeith in Aperture Magazine

Shikeith is featured in Aperture Magazine’s Spring 2022 Issue. Tracing the artist’s expansive career, Tiana Reid writes “The opera, oceanic and spiritual, marks a turning point in Shikeith’s career as he actively tries to renew his established practice. Shikeith is best known for formal portraiture, crisp images of Black figures executed with conceptual clarity, but his perspective is an intense, enveloping, and often experimental style.” To read the full essay, please visit the Aperture website.

Matthew Brandt in Artforum

Matthew Brandt’s solo exhibition Carbon, Birch, Silver, Rooms at Yossi Milo Gallery was reviewed by Donald Kuspit in the February 2022 issue of Artforum.

Kohei Yoshiyuki: 1946 - 2022

Yossi Milo Gallery is deeply saddened to share the news of Kohei Yoshiyuki’s passing. Yoshiyuki was born in the Hiroshima Prefecture in 1946 and passed away on January 21, 2022. Now beloved as one of Japan’s most important photographers, the artist broke ground with his photographs taken in the early 1970s of couples engaged in sex acts in Tokyo’s public parks, often accompanied by voyeuristic onlookers. Our deepest sympathies go to his family.
