Past Collection Exhibitions
The Collection of Shuzo Takiguchi “Shuzo Takiguchi and Collected Poetry”
May 11 - June 23, 2020
This is an introduction to experimental artwork and works by Shuzo Takiguchi as well as to works and gifts that were collected in Shuzo Takiguchi's study and that were sent by artists who associated with him.
Around the end of the 1950s, Takiguchi began to feel a sense of contradiction in writing journalistic criticism. From that point on, he devoted himself to writing short compositions and poems addressed to artists with whom he was very close. He was involved in the creation of many collections of poetry and pictures, particularly from the mid-1960s onward. Takiguchi, who saw a “deep psychological relationship” between poetry and painting, may have seen collections of poetry and art created through collaboration as a poet as the best method to form deep relationships with artists. This season's exhibition introduces collections of poetry and art Takiguchi created with Mitsuo Kano, Joan Miró, and Antoni Tàpies, including the original image “Fragments in the Palm of the Hand” from the collection of poetry and pictures donated by Mitsuo Kano.
