Fergus McCaffrey is pleased to present Jasper Johns: Eyes in the Persistence of Form, opening at the gallery’s Tokyo location, Saturday, September 11, 2021.

Concurrent with Johns’ forthcoming dual retrospective, Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror, at the Whitney Museum of Art, New York and the Philadelphia Museum Art (September 29, 2021 – February 13, 2022), this exhibition will focus on the semiotic storm of ocular freedom pervading the artist’s prints, spanning the late 1980s to the early 2000s. Conceived between the East coast and the hurricane-prone island of St. Martin, these works evoke seeing and seasonality, deploying the corporeal and metaphorical figure of the eye, both human and of the storm.
