Kazuo Shiraga (1924-2008) is best known for his activities as part of the Gutai group, a radical post-war art collective. He pioneered unknown techniques such as suspending himself from a rope on the ceiling and creating a work of art by running on the canvas. His works garnered attention for their radical nature and the direct link between physicality and art. During this exhibition, you will have a chance to see 60 art pieces (100 pieces, including photographs, videos, and other documents.)
