Kazuo Shiraga: A Retrospective

*Temporarily closed through March 16*

Kazuo Shiraga was an artist and member of the Gutai movement, a group that rebelled against tradition, valorized immediacy and was renowned for their dedication to performance art. Shiraga distinguished himself by his unique painting style, where he used his foot to draw on canvases spread on his floor. He forged new frontiers in the world of Japanese art through his ideas and execution, which went back to the roots of human creation. This exhibition explores his worth thoroughly in the form of paintings and sculptures.
