Cai Guo-Qiang: Ramble in the Cosmos - From Primeval Fireball Onward

The National Art Center, Tokyo


Cai Guo-Qiang
Internationally-renowned contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang (b. 1957, Quanzhou, China) presents a major solo exhibition, co-organized by Saint Laurent. Cai is acclaimed for his gunpowder paintings, installations, and outdoor explosion events. The nearly nine years he spent in Japan (from the end of 1986 to 1995) was a critical period in his artistic career; he has been active in New York since 1995. Originating from Cai’s landmark exhibition Primeval Fireball- his artistic big bang- the exhibition reviews Cai’s artistic journey through the themes of the cosmos and the unseen world.
