The National Art Center, Tokyo, is hosting the first major retrospective of Japanese artist Keiichi Tanaami. This exhibition, titled “Adventures in Memory,” explores Tanaami’s extensive and varied body of work, showcasing his impact on modern art and featuring his newest creations.

For over 60 years, Tanaami has produced a wide range of art, including paintings, collages, sculptures, animations, videos, and installations. The exhibition delves into the theme of “memory,” presenting new paintings, sculptures, and animations, as well as important graphic designs from the late 1960s and early 1970s, colorful wooden sculptures from the 1980s, and some of his early pop art pieces recently discovered in his studio.

Tanaami began his career as a designer at Musashino Art University and became the first art director for PLAYBOY Japan in 1975. He gained recognition in Japan’s underground art scene through his work in magazines and advertisements, establishing himself as a significant figure in the art world.

Keiichi Tanaami: Adventures in Memory will be on view from August 7 – November 11, 2024.
