Shinro Ohtake
Nov 1, 2022 - Feb 5, 2023
Since his spectacular debut in the early 1980s, Shinro Ohtake (b. 1955) has always been a lead runner with an exceptional creative urge, producing an enormous number of works ranging from painting, printing, drawing, sculpture, videos, and picture books to audio, writing, installation, and huge structures. He has earned an international reputation as a leader in contemporary Japanese art after his participation in the 2012 documenta, and the 2013 Venice Biennale. The long-awaited exhibition presents under seven themes about 500 items including works shown at international exhibitions and is held at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo that will celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2022. The artist utilizes every material, every image, and every method. While tracing his career that he has maintained for nearly a half century under a theme he calls “what’s already there,” this show presents his works, without sticking to chronology, in a way that enables viewers to be immersed in the world of his art, to offer an opportunity to travel inside his strikingly individual brain that keeps running.
