Tadanori Yokoo Exhibition
One of Japan’s most internationally recognized graphic designers and artists, Tadanori Yokoo was an influential leader of youth culture when he drew illustrations for Harumi Setouchi’s historical serial, Genka, between 1974 and 1975. Few knew of the existence of the entire series of originals until they emerged in 2015. These original illustrations express the atmosphere and energy of the mid-1970s when Yokoo was at the forefront of his field. Incorporating the title “The Complete Drawings for Genka,” as named by Yokoo himself, this current exhibition presents a new perspective of all 371 original illustrations.
