This event has ended.

This exhibition is Okazaki’s second solo exhibition at TSCA this year. Okazaki’s previous solo exhibition ‘A Decade or So Ago: As Tears Go By’ featured twelve selected works made before the year 2010. This exhibition was the first time in roughly a decade that these works, which ranged from sculpture to painting to tile, had been exhibited, but they each held a special meaning to the artist and had been carefully preserved in his own collection.

The upcoming exhibition Topica Pictus Tennoz is one of four departure points for Topica Pictus, which takes A Decade or So Ago: As Tears Go By as a sort of prologue.

From March to June this year, Okazaki sheltered himself in his studio, producing over 150 works during this period of intense concentration. Beginning in mid-October, these works will be divided into exhibitions at multiple locations around the world, including art museums, galleries and bookstores. In addition, a catalog containing 138 of these works will be published.

Topica Pictus is a series that pushes the concept of the Zero Thumbnail series to a new level. The unprecedented motifs, titles, and bold compositions of these new works are full of surprises and discoveries to stimulate visitors to think afresh from various perspectives.
