For José Parlá, walls are sites where “the energy, history, and culture of urban society are located, and where human memory and psychology are inscribed.” The New York-based artist’s expressive, language-focused work often starts from the walls of international cities he visits, and offers unique, visual vehicles for dialogue with each locale. “PROSE,” the globetrotting artist’s first solo exhibition at YUKA TSURUNO GALLERY, consists of paintings on canvas and a 15-meter mural canvas painting, each one showcasing Parlá’s densely-layered, text-heavy style. The exhibition — which will be held at the gallery’s newest venue in TOLOT/heuristic SHINONOME — will run from March 21 to May 18, and is also set to include a reception party for the artist on March 21, along with a 40-page commemorative catalog.
