Sakata Kazuo: Recoup Lost Ground

Sakata Kazuo: Recoup Lost Ground

Saturday, December 7, 2019 – Sunday, January 26, 2020

Sakata Kazuo (1889-1956) is an artist who understood core developments in abstract painting from Cubism onwards and pushed their possibilities to the very limit. This exhibition presents all the details of Sakata Kazuo’s work, which attained a level that has rarely been reached anywhere in the world, and it uncovers the possibilities of the worlds woven into his paintings. We invited Okazaki Kenjiro who is known as a splended artist and theorist to curate the exhibition, which is the first to present a comprehensive exploration of Sakata Kazuo, as a 'contemporary artist'.
