The Estate of Kazuo Shiraga and Fergus McCaffrey are extremely proud to announce Kazuo & Fujiko Shiraga; the first-ever joint exhibition of Kazuo Shiraga and his wife and fellow artist Fujiko.

On view from April 30–June 20, 2015 at Fergus McCaffrey, New York, the show opens with a reception on April 30th from 6–8 pm.

Kazuo Shiraga (b. 1924–2008) married Fujiko Uemura (b. 1928) in 1948, the year that he graduated from Kyoto Municipal School of Painting. In 1952, Kazuo co-founded the avant-garde painting collective Zero Society with Saburō Murakami and Akira Kanayama. Fujiko Shiraga and Atsuko Tanaka became members of Zero Society shortly thereafter, and in April 1955, the five artists joined the Gutai Art Association.
