MURAYAMA TOMOYOSHI
GET ALL OF ME SEETHING

February 11 - March 25 2012



First retrospective of MURAYAMA Tomoyoshi (1901-1977), whose avant-garde activities had influenced Japanese modern art in the 1920-30s. After coming back from Berlin in 1923, MURAYAMA joined the group "Mavo". He has been known with works of collage figures and dance performances, as well as stage designs and illustrations for children books. The exhibition survays not only those rare works of MURAYAMA made by himself, but also works of Kandinsky and Klee, those who influenced MURAYAMA while his stay in Berlin, and other colleages, such as WADACHI Tomoo and NAGANO Yoshimitsu. Through this exhibition, you will be able to view the very most of MURAYAMA's omniderectional creative works.
