Hi-Red Center Exhibition

Formed by vanguard artists Jiro Takamatsu, Genpei Akasegawa and Natsuyuki Nakanishi in the 60s, 'Hi-Red Center' has been aiming to use art to stir up and blow life into our tedious daily lives. Some of their famous works include 'The Yamanote Line Incident' and 'Cleaning Campaign in the Tokyo Capital Region' – in which the group dressed up in white costumes and unnecessarily cleaned up the streets of Tokyo in reaction to the tightened security measures put in place during the first Tokyo Olympics. Look back at that performance and much more at this exhibition commemorating their 50th anniversary, and just in case you're wondering what the the curious name means, it's made up of the first word of each member's surname: 'hi' (taka), 'red' (aka) and 'center' (naka).
