"Piero" (1975) by Masayoshi Nakamura

Known for his strong subversion of traditional Japanese art values, nihonga (Japanese-style) artist Masayoshi Nakamura (1924-1977) found beauty in what others might have been considered as ugly. His determination in pursuing unconventional aesthetics led him to become one of the pioneers of avant-garde painting in Japan.

This exhibition presents Nakamura's innovative works, while also shedding some light on his private-life and his struggle with lung cancer; till April 1.
