Tetsumi Kudo “Your Portrait”

The National Museum of Art, Osaka

poster for Tetsumi Kudo “Your Portrait”

This event has ended.

After first receiving attention as a champion of Anti-Art, Osaka-born Tetsumi Kudo (1935-1990) established a base in Paris in 1962 and while working throughout Europe, evolved a unique world of art by fusing a critical perspective of civilization with scientific reasoning. Known for boldly incisive and provocative works and happenings that dealt with issues such as sex, pollution, atomic power, and genetics, Kudo’s practice has recently prompted renewed interest internationally. In this retrospective, we trace the artist’s spiritual trajectory over a period of some 30 years through approximately 200 important works from both Japan and abroad.
