Join us for the opening reception of ‘Gutai,’ an exhibition exploring the legacy of Japan’s most innovative and influential avant-garde collective of the twentieth century. Demonstrating a freewheeling relationship between art, body, space, and time, the exhibition will feature focused presentations of masterworks by Gutai artists including Tsuyoshi Maekawa, Takesada Matsutani, Sadamasa Motonaga, Shozo Shimamoto, Kazuo Shiraga, Atsuko Tanaka, Chiyu Uemae, Tsuruko Yamazaki. Shown together, these artists’ iconic works illuminate many of the core tenets of a movement defined by experimentation, individuality, physical action, and psychological freedom.
