THE JAPAN FOUNDATION AWARDS GRANT IN SUPPORT OF GUTAI: SPLENDID PLAYGROUND
The Guggenheim is tremendously grateful to The Japan Foundation for generous support of Gutai: Splendid Playground, the first North American museum retrospective devoted to the highly influential artist group and artistic movement known as Gutai. Emerging in early 1950s postwar Japan, Gutai is among the most significant international avant-garde movements to develop outside Western centers of modern art, anticipating trends and concerns that became central to artistic discourse around the globe in the 1960s and beyond. Building upon the achievements of previous shows presented under the auspices of the Guggenheim’s Asian Art program, Gutai: Splendid Playground showcases approximately 120 objects that demonstrate the group’s radical experimentation across a range of media and styles and reflect the full trajectory of the Gutai movement from circa 1954 to 1972. The exhibition is enriched by a 316-page catalogue and, among other exhibition expenses, funding from The Japan Foundation is supporting this scholarly publication, representing the first comprehensive history and interpretation of Gutai published in English. Cocurated by Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator of Asian Art, and Ming Tiampo, Guest Curator and Associate Professor of Art History at Carleton University in Ottawa, Gutai: Splendid Playground is on view from February 15 through May 8, 2013.
