Poster design: Yokoo Tadanori
Among the unique activities performed at the Yokoo Tadanori Museum of Contemporary Art is a project to survey the enormous number of materials preserved by Yokoo Tadanori. These include photographs and printed matter that were used as motifs in the artist’s works, idea sketches and manuscripts created in the production process, products derived from artworks, and a diverse range of items, such as picture postcards, records, and books, from Yokoo’s personal collection. The materials that are currently stored in the museum alone number to several hundred boxes, and efforts to examine them are still underway. We are pleased to announce the start of YOKOO MANIARISM, a new series of exhibitions designed to shed light on this archive and the museum’s efforts to survey it.
As the first installment in the series, we present over 100 items closely related to Yokoo’s life and art that are being shown for the first time. These materials reveal the artist’s sharp eye for everyday objects, his skillful and bold ability to transform things into art, and the source of Yokoo’s unique creative world. They also provide us with insight into the lifestyle of this artist who makes use of every aspect of life and production as a material, and presents it as a work of art.
