Opening Nov 12: 110th Year Anniversary Commemorative Exhibition, HIDAI NANKOKU

By: SEI-RIN Co., Ltd.
SHINJUKU-KU, Japan - Nov. 8, 2022 - PRLog -- √K Contemporary (Root K Contemporary) to announce the opening of HIDAI NANKOKU, a solo exhibition of the avant-garde calligrapher's works. Organized by the Japan Art Inheritance Association, the exhibition opens on November 12 and will continue on through December 10. Presenting approximately 50 works, the show will feature never-before-exhibited works as well as Takuhon (ink rubbings) from the artist's personal collection.

Through his conception of the "Art of the Line", Nankoku Hidai shocked the art world, as well as his fellow Japanese calligraphers. Described as the "New Abstract Style" by the San Francisco Sunday Chronicle, his works earned great acclaim and were subsequently acquired by prominent collectors and highly established institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.

Despite these accomplishments, Hidai's achievements fail to place themselves within the framework of art history. With this year marking 110 years since his birth, the exhibition seeks to revisit and unravel the artist's "Art of the Line" with the hopes of articulating and sharing his talents and accomplishments with future generations.

On this occasion, approx. 50 works, including never-before-exhibited works, will be on exhibit. Further highlights include a special display of Takuhon (ink rubbings) from the artist's own collection, in the basement of the gallery as well as special events, such as a gallery talk, workshop, and fashion event will be held during the course of the show.

Further details will be posted on the official exhibition website below.
