Jiro Takamatsu and Keiji Uematsu in conversation
30 September – 29 November 2019
Inside/Out placed work by Japanese artist Jiro Takamatsu (1936-1998), who influenced the celebrated movement Mona-ha (School of Things), in creative dialogue with new and existing work by Keiji Uematsu, who is based in Dusseldorf and Osaka.
Guest curated by the Tokyo-based gallerist Yumiko Chiba, the exhibition paired the two artists for the first time and enabled a deeper understanding of the new ways of thinking about sculpture that developed in post-war Japan.
It was Uematsu’s first non-commercial exhibition in the UK and included large scale new works.
Official event of the Japan UK Season of Culture 2019.
