Ushio Shinohara: Boxing Explosion on My Painting!

Art Free
篠原有司男 個展「我輩の絵にパンチが炸裂!」

Avant-garde artist Ushio Shinohara broke into the spotlight in the '60s with his guerrilla exhibits, and later helped found the Neo Dadaism Organizers group of rebel creatives that also included the likes of Genpei Akasegawa and Shusaku Arakawa. His contribution to the worldwide legacy of pop art has only began to be recognised in recent years, with the 'International Pop' exhibit in Minneapolis and the 'World Goes Pop' show in London extensively featuring Shinohara's creations. Based in New York since the late ’60s, the Tokyo-born artist now returns home for his first solo show in the city in ten years. 'Boxing Explosion on My Painting!' consists mainly of the 'boxing paintings' featured in POV: Cutie and the Boxer, the 2013 documentary that zoomed in on the Shinoharas' unconventional marriage. Shinohara himself will be giving a performance during the opening ceremony (6pm-8pm) on March 11.
