Fergus McCaffrey is honored to present Matthew Barney, Carolee Schneemann, Kazuo Shiraga, and Min Tanaka, opening at the gallery’s Tokyo location on Thursday, October 15, 2020.

Exhibiting together for the first time, this presentation of visionary artists seeks to prompt cross-generational insights, from East to West, into the physicality that underscores the act of art-making. In dialogue with one another, the exhibited works guide us through a history of the body’s impulse to create. These artists challenge the established art historical lexicon of form, matter, and structure unearthing a shared language of human embodiment articulated through dance, performance, painting and sculpture.

Barney, Schneemann, Shiraga and Tanaka each express, in their varied approaches, a personal philosophy of dynamic corporeality, staging the physical body as a vehicle for what philosopher Pierre-Felix Guattari calls, in his 1984 homage to Tanaka—“a thither side of the outline called Story; a body without organs.”
