JIRO TAKAMATSU

13 October 2015 - 14 November 2015
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to annonce our forthcoming exhibition of work by Jiro Takamatsu. This is the second solo exhibition by Japanese artist Jiro Takamatsu (1936 - 1998).

Takamatsu's career spanned over thirty years, during which time his considerable influence extended as an artist, theorist and teacher in Japanese postwar culture. He has been the subject of major solo retrospectives in Japan; represented Japan at the Venice Biennale (Carlo Cardazzo Price, 1968); exhibited at the Paris Biennial (1969); Sao Paulo Biennial (1973); and Documenta Kassel (1977). This exhibition offers a timely re-evaluation of his practice following significant recent re-appraisals of Japanese avant-garde art across the world.

The private view will be held on 12 October 2015, 6-8pm.
