Tokyo 1955–1970: A New Avant-Garde

MoMA, 11 West 53rd, NYC (6th Floor Gallery)

With roughly three hundred works by some sixty artists, “Tokyo 1955–1970” presents an extensive roster of art produced in the capital of Japan during this key period. The exhibition .. encompasses not only Gutai, Anti-Art, and Non-Art—movements that have been well known in the US for some time—but also aspects of postwar Japanese art hitherto less known in the Western Hemisphere, including the graphic realism of Hiroshi Nakamura and Tiger Tateishi and intermedia projects by the collective Jikken Kōbō (Experimental Workshop). The heterogeneity of material in the show—ranging from painting, sculpture, photography, and film to performance, design, and architecture—demonstrates that the history of the avant-garde in Tokyo was not monolithic, but instead made up of multiple compelling narratives that paralleled other developments in radical art around the globe. — Reiko Tomii, ArtForum
