poster for Shinro Ohtake “Newnew”

This event has ended.

Since bursting on the scene in the early 1980s, Shinro Ohtake (Tokyo, 1955—) has remained a creative force at the forefront of contemporary art. Besides painting, he has worked in almost every other medium as the impulse strikes him, including sound, photography, video, and printed matter. He is also known for his collaborations with artists in other fields, and his influence extends beyond the world of contemporary art to genres including design, culture, and music.

With new large scale works including MON CHERI: A Self-Portrait as a Scrapped Shed (transported from a forest in Kassel, Germany), a 6-meter high painting and an immense installation in the museum’s three-level entrance hall, as well as the Time Memory series and gouache based works this exhibition, as the title suggests, places a spotlight on a new body of work from this continually evolving artist.
