Yutaka Sone was published on the occasion of three solo exhibitions in 2006: Yutaka Sone Forecast: Snow at The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago; Yutaka Sone: X-Art Show at the Aspen Art Museum, Colorado; and Yutaka Sone: Like Looking for Snow Leopard at the Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland. Collectively, these exhibitions provided a broad overview of the artist’s diverse body of work. Forecast: Snow at The Renaissance Society presented a selection of paintings, drawings, sculptural studies, and crystal and marble snowflake sculptures, which showcased the artist’s idea of snowflake patterns as blueprints for architectural spaces and psychological states. X-Art Show at the Aspen Art Museum featured work fusing art with sport, performance, and entertainment, including snow-inspired paintings and sculptures, performance-related ephemera, and a pair of giant dice that were flown by helicopter from the museum to Buttermilk Mountain and tossed down the half pipe. Like Looking for Snow Leopard at the Kunsthalle Bern presented Sone’s personal assessment of landscape and displayed a new version of his large installation It Seems Like Snow Leopard Island (2002-2006), alongside related snowflake sculptures, paintings, drawings, and video work. This fully-illustrated, bilingual catalogue (English and German) includes texts by Kunsthalle Bern director and curator Philippe Pirotte; Renaissance Society curator Hamza Walker; Aspen Art Museum director and curator Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson; and writer Benjamin Weissman.
