Project Description

Whitestone Gallery will highlight the work of three post-war Japanese artists: Yayoi Kusama, Natsuyuki Nakanishi, and Jiro Takamatsu—three artists that were among the most influential of those engaged in advanced art practices in Japan between the 1950s and 1970s. The presentation will feature Kusama's thick Japanese paper works, named "Shikishi," which she created between 1978 and 1984. The gallery’s selection of work by Takamatsu and Nakanishi makes clear how these artists sought to eliminate the boundary between art and life. Together, the booth aims to reveal the distinct historical influence of each artist.
