Gutai has established itself as an innovative collective that characterizes the radicalism of 1960s art in Japan, and its place in world art history appears secure today. However, we may ask at this juncture of history: do we really know Gutai? This panel, featuring artist Ei Arakawa, art historian and curator Dr. Reiko Tomii, and professor and gallery director Midori Yoshimoto, presents fresh views on Gutai drawing and the latest scholarship and expansive interpretations. The talk will examine Gutai’s true strength as a collective, the Gutai leader Jiro Yoshihara’s role in the group, and Gutai women artists and their abstraction.
