This exhibition marks the world's first major retrospective exhibition by Japanese artist, Keiichi Tanaami. The exhibition engages with the theme of “memory,” a keyword which serves to unravel Tanaami's artistic practice spanning over half a century, and attempts to uncover the entirety of his diverse oeuvre. In addition to new paintings, sculptures, and animations, the exhibition will feature valuable graphic design and illustration works created between the late 1960s and early 1970s, as well as a series of vibrantly colored wooden sculptures from the 1980s, and some of his earliest pop art works that were recently discovered in his studio.
