YAMAGUCHI Akira Exhibition@Contemporary Art Gallery, Art Tower Mito

YAMAGUCHI Akira Exhibition "Stepping back to seek the underneath" will be taken place from Februrary 21 to May 17 at Contemporary Art Gallery, Art Tower Mito.

The exhibition’s title, ‘Stepping Back to Seek the Underneath’, expresses Yamaguchi’s unique perspective on both art and philosophy of life, while also evoking the composition of the exhibition itself: revealing the world of his art room by room, and hinting at the creation of his epic masterworks. As you stroll through the space, you feel that you have caught a glimpse of the artist’s thinking process.

We invite you to experience the world of Yamaguchi Akira, overflowing with subtle wit which blends the present and the past, the ordinary and the extraordinary, into a perfect whole.
