This exhibition examines the 50-year career of Ushio Shinohara, an indispensable player in the field of global art history. From 1958-64, a critically important period of postwar Japanese art, Shinohara was a noted regular of the annual Yomiuri Independent Exhibition and a founding member of a short-lived avant-garde group, Neo Dada. Known for his Mohawk hairdo, he invented Boxing Painting, his version of "true" action.
