Jad Fair Solo Show: ‘Animal Friends’


This rescheduled solo exhibition showcases the paper cuttings by artist and musician Jad Fair, best known as the co-founder of alternative rock band Half Japanese. Based on the theme of animal, every piece on display was created for this exhibition, which will be Fair’s fifth solo exhibition at Hiromart Gallery in Sekiguchi.

Jad Fair founded Half Japanese in 1974 with his brother, David, and released 30 records, performing and collaborating with alternative rock’s biggest names, including Daniel Johnston, Teenage Fanclub, Yo La Tengo, John Zorn and Thurston Moore.

Jad’s talent for album cover design led to a second career as a visual artist. Books of his artwork have been published in the US, UK, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Portugal and Japan.

Please note:
• Admission may be limited when the space is crowded.
• Please wear a face mask or covering.
• Please understand hours and closure of the gallery may be subject to change without notice.
