This exhibition at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo is Shinro Ohtake’s first major retrospective in 16 years. The multi-disciplinary artist has been producing a stunning array of paintings, prints, sculptures and motion picture art since his debut in the 1980s and continues to maintain a reputation as a leading contemporary creative both in Japan and overseas. Here, Ohtake presents 500 exhibits divided into seven conceptual themes: ‘Self/Others’, ‘Memory’, ‘Time’, ‘From One to Another’, ‘Dreams/Retine’, 'Layer/Stratum’ and ‘Sound’. The installations will span the last four decades of Ohtake’s spectacular career, from his earliest works to the pieces he created amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Highlights include an overflowing scrapbook, which the artist worked on between 2018 and 2021, as well as a 'self portrait' he constructed in the form of an outdoor shed.
