Jiro Takamatsu at Fergus McCaffrey, New York

January 2, 2017

The exhibition presents influential Japanese artist Jiro Takamatsu in his third solo with the gallery. As a co-founder of the legendary collective Hi Red Center in 1963 and the central inspiration for Mono-Ha, Jiro Takamatsu brought significant changes in the evolution of visual art in Japan as an artist, theorist and teacher, challenging the prevailing orthodox methods of painting free of representation and sculptures that emphasized truth to materials and the anti-illusional during the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibition features his paintings, sculptures, photographs, text works, and drawings dating from 1966 through 1978.
