In January 1979, Genichiro Inokuma (1902-93) looked back on his life in the Nihon Keizai Shimbun’s popular column, “My Resume” (Watashi no Rirekisho). In a light-hearted vein, he wrote of how he was raised in pastoral surroundings in Kagawa, Shikoku—a child with a love of drawing pictures, then went out into the wide world and forged a career as a painter through hard work while befriending people of all backgrounds. Drawing from Inokuma’s recollections, this two-part exhibition will survey his life and work through artworks and materials related to episodes in his artistic career. Part I of the exhibition will trace his development from childhood and middle school to his art college years and studies in Paris in his late thirties.

Teppei Kaneuji's "ZONES" Upcoming

Hours: 10:00 - 18:00 (Admission until 30 minutes before closing time)
*Open until 21:00 on 27th August.
Teppei Kaneuji (born 1978, resident Kyoto Prefecture) takes materials from his surroundings and collages them together in altered contexts, cutting away and connecting parts, to create works of art. This exhibition, his first major solo show in Japan in seven years, will comprise mainly new work, including a large space-specific installation, exploring extended collage though connections with the “other” as a means of production and a new way of sculpture.
