IZUMI KATO－LIKE A ROLLING SNOWBALL
Dates : August 10 (Saturday), 2019 - January 13 (Monday/national holiday), 2020
The Hara Museum of Contemporary Art and Hara Museum ARC are proud to present solo exhibitions featuring Izumi Kato, an artist known for his powerful and mysterious sculptures with a primitivistic air. Initially a painter, Kato soon expanded his oeuvre to encompass wooden sculptures and dynamic installations that incorporate stone, cloth and a wide range of other materials. He is a frequent exhibitor at venues in Europe, the United States and Asia, including the 2007 Venice Biennale. The exhibition at the Hara Museum, Kato’s first solo show at an art museum in Tokyo, will include new paintings and sculptures, while Hara Museum ARC in Gunma Prefecture will present a retrospective of the artist’s works that include never-before-shown items from Kato’s own collection. Together, these shows promise to provide a broad overview of Kato’s artistic vision.
