Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo

poster for Ay-O "Over the Rainbow Once More"

This event has ended.

Ay-O (1931 - ) is known as ‘the Rainbow Artist’ for the way in which he depicts all his motifs through a spectrum of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. He was a member of the international avant-garde artist group, Fluxus, using everyday actions or objects as his material to produce a form of art that could be experienced physically through smell, touch and the other senses. This exhibition will present a large-scale, participatory installation and a new painting, 30 meters in length, as well as oil paintings, prints, and performance records or re-creations, tracing the course of his career.

Performance by the artist scheduled for late March. See website for details and updates.
