This event has ended.

Jiro Takamatsu, Genpei Akasegawa and Natsuyuki Nakanishi came together to form Hi-Red Center in May 1963 and undertook to disturb the peace of the everyday through art interventions. To mark 50 years since the forming of this remarkable group this exhibition examines their direct actions through photographs and texts, alongside individual objects and paintings of each artist, providing a mulch-angled perspective upon their work.
