Event Description

Coinciding with commissioned works debuting at the Venice Biennale, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is honored to present the first ever exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to the work of the Osaka-born, Paris-based artist Takesada Matsutani. Over a five-decade career that began with his participation in the Gutai Art Association and evolved to express the tangled complexities of a life lived between France and Japan, Matsutani has developed a unique visual language of form and materials. The exhibition highlights three distinct periods in the artist’s oeuvre and includes 1960s Gutai era pieces never before shown outside of Japan, one of the artist’s largest installations from 1983, and a new pre-figuration of his Venice Biennale project. Organized with Olivier Renaud-Clément, the exhibition will remain on view at the South gallery from 1 July through 17 September 2017.
