At the Dallas Museum of Art Between Action and the Unknown: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga
Gabriel Ritter Interview
Episode 237-March 31, 2015
This week, we visit the Dallas Museum of Art and speak with curator Gabriel Ritter, about the exhibition Between Action and the Unknown: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga on view at the museum through July 19, 2015.
On the cutting room floor: One scene that was cut for time purposes featured Gabriel talking about the artistic paths Motonaga and Shiraga took in the years after the death of the Gutai movements founder, Jiro Yoshihara:
“I think with both of the artists you can really argue that into the 60s and into the 70s they were really trying to experiment more and define themselves, not necessarily within the umbrella of Gutai but the growing pains, how to figure out who Shiraga was…who Motonaga was…what defined them as individuals. For Shiraga, it was the pursuit of Buddhism, for Motonaga it becomes a transition to a more hard edge shape cartoon-y [style] that harkens back to his early work with illustration.”
