This event has ended.

Dominique Lévy Gallery presents an intimate selection of the Japanese artist Tsuyoshi Maekawa’s paintings of the early 1960s. The seven paintings included in the exhibition were executed between 1962 and 1965, Maekawa’s first two years as a Gutai member. Jiro Yoshihara founded the Gutai group in 1954. In the beginning there were seventeen members of the group, and these artists came to be known as the first generation of Gutai. Later in the 1960s several other influential artists, including Maekawa, joined, and they have come to be known as the second generation Gutai artists. Maekawa was born in Osaka in 1936. He took Yoshihara as his mentor in 1959 and participated in the 8th Gutai Exhibition that same year, finally becoming a group member in 1962. From that point until the group’s eventual dissolution, Maekawa exhibited his work at every Gutai event.
