This event has ended.

Kazuo Shiraga (1924-2008) was the pioneer of action painting in Japan. He is one of the most representative artists of the Gutai Art Association and is a key figure in the history of Japanese post-war art. Shiraga achieved an unprecedented visual quality by placing a canvas on the floor and sliding over it with paint on his feet. This exhibition will commemorate his death in 2008 showcasing around 50 paintings including Shiraga's most renowned series. This will be the first major retrospective of his works in the Kanto region.
