Coinciding with the inauguration of the Hôtel des Collections on June 29, 2019, the MO.CO. unveils the first public presentation of masterpieces from the Ishikawa Collection. This outstanding and relatively recent private collection begun in 2011 by Yasuharu Ishikawa, a Japanese entrepreneur born in 1970 at Okayama, is characterized by exceptional coherence and a Japanese feel that derives primarily from its emphasis on minimal, understated, subtle forms.

The exhibition Intimate Distance, curated by Yuko Hasegawa, Artistic Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (MOT) features nearly 30 works by artists such as Simon Fujiwara, Ryan Gander, Liam Gillick, Pierre Huyghe, and Anri Sala.

The catalog, co-published by MO.CO. and Silvana Editoriale, includes contributions from Yuko Hasegawa, Nicolas Bourriaud, Ryoko Sekiguchi, and Ingrid Luquet-Gad, as well as an interview with the collector Yasuharu Ishikawa.
