New EXHIBITION TACHITASA 2023 Tachitasa Confronting Barnett Newman in Washington, D.C. will be held

We are pleased to present a record of performance of Tachitasa on September 15, 2022, at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.,USA.
The style of the exhibition is the same as that of the Exhibition Tachitasa 2017, with video screenings, photographs, and materials, but the Newman's works confronted this time are a group of 15 paintings in total. I faced the entire exhibition space, Gallery B615, East Build.
We will project large images on three walls so that visitors can experience the entire exhibition space as if they were in the entire museum. We look forward to your visit.
The report on the performance and this exhibition will be posted on this site around March.

New Performance successfully completed! We report it at the exhibition.

On September 15, 2022, I performed "Tachitasa" at the National Gallery of Art, East Building. We are now preparing for the exhibition to report it. The Newman work that I confronted was a series of paintings. The feeling of being surrounded was just amazing! I was able to have a fulfilling conversation with the curators of the museum, and I got to the chance to look into valuable materials.
Exhibition Tachitasa_ 2023: January 17-28 at Ningyocho Vision's, Tokyo. Look forward to it!
