Kota Ezawa
Crime of Art

The Crime of Art looks at Kota Ezawa’s oeuvre using crime as a topical lens. The book presents photographs and reproductions from Ezawa’s recent exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, and Amherst featuring remakes of paintings stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. In addition, the book draws connections from his current project to other work by Ezawa from the early 2000s to the present that contemplate crime.
