Do Something Interesting\, See Something Odd\, delves ever deeper into Shimamoto&rsquo\;s revolutionary career traj ectory\, incorporating works dating from the 1960s Gutai period through th e artist&rsquo\;s death in 2013. The exhibition provides an overview of th e maturation of Shimamoto&rsquo\;s style and technique. Centerpieces inclu de examples of his trademark Bottle Crash series\, in which the artist cre ated lively\, abstract paint-smattered works by ceremoniously throwing bot tles and other containers full of pigment at otherwise blank canvases\, hi ghlighting the innovative performance-based methods and the energy\, visua lly documented within the works\, with which Shimamoto approached his art over the course of his lengthy career. Pieces such as the 2011 Untitled (P ing Pong)\, which incorporates islands of ping pong balls across the surfa ce of the canvas\, exemplify a characteristic playfulness and desire to pu sh the limits of what is possible in art that embodies the very spirit of Gutai\, and of Shimamoto&rsquo\;s work and life.\nAdmission:free\nWEB:<a h ref="" target="_blank">< /a>\nopening reception:November 3 6-8pm DTSTAMP:20240722T211441Z SUMMARY:SHOZO SHIMAMOTO: Do Something Interesting\, See Something Odd URL:/en/events/2016/11/03/shozo-shimamoto-do-something-interesting-see-som/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
