The new issue of ART iT (13) is out.
The 3rd anniversary issue of ART iT magazine dedicates a total of 50 pages to Ohtake Shinro (including a special poster!). Published around the time when the large-scale solo exhibition “Zen-kei: Retrospective 1955-2006” showcasing the work of this “uncrowned king of Japanese painters” opens, this is an essential publication to refer to both before and after witnessing history. The magazine contains next to a recent exclusive interview with the artist a number of huge photographs of his works, an interview with Sawaragi Noi that, along with 15 carefully selected items, serves as a key to understanding the world of Ohtake Shinro, and an interview with Koike Kazuko, formerly the director of Sagacho Exhibit Space, about Ohtake’s legendary solo show at the venue in the ’80s. Further in the magazine are an interview with Tabaimo, a piece on Bill Viola by Minato Chihiro, Tsumura Kosuke + Kudo Kiki, and more. (REALTOKYO)
