Shiro Kuramata Exhibition

This event has ended.

Presenting Shiro Kuramata’s “Non-pole I” “Non-pole II,” which were shown at the 11th Tokyo International Hanga Biennale in 1979 but then remained stored away for many long years. It is their first public presentation following Kuramata’s passing; as they’ve never been included in any of the many exhibitions and retrospectives held in Japan or abroad, these works have been hardly recorded in any literature about Kuramata. This exhibition’s objets include the floating, translucent “Cabinet de Curiosite” flower vases; the miniature work “Glass Chair”; and “Just in Time”, a clock which tracks time with a delicate second hand. Also featured are furniture pieces created with an acrylically sealed rose used as material for one of Kuramata’s representative works, “Miss Blanche,” plus posters including one from the 1972 Miki Tomio Exhibition and various other rare posters from Kuramata exhibitions around the world, some designed by Yokoo Tadanori and other famous artists. These Kuramata works are presented alongside drawings and prints by his contemporaries such as Isozaki Arata and Ando Tadao.



from October 09, 2018 to October 31, 2018
