Opening: Wednesday 4 November 2015, 6 – 8 pm
*Performance: Monday 9 November, 5.30 pm
Beginning 4 November 2015, Hauser & Wirth will present the gallery’s first New York exhibition devoted to internationally-admired Osaka-born, Paris-based artist Takesada Matsutani. Over a five-decade career that began with his participation in the Gutai Art Association and evolved to express the tangled complexities of a life lived between France and Japan, Matsutani has developed a unique visual language of form and materials.
*Performance – On 9 November 2015, Takesada Matsutani will enact ‘Stream in New York’, performing one final gesture in Sumi ink to complete a major five-meter canvas on view in the exhibition. Following this action, the gallery will host a panel discussion between the artist; Olivier Renaud-Clément, co-organizer of the exhibition; and Reiko Tomii, critic, scholar, and founder of PoNJA-GenKON. Reservations are required to attend the event and panel. PleaseRSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
