Tokyo 1955-1970Tokyo 1955-1970

A New Avant-Garde

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Doryun Chong. Text by Doryun Chong, Michio Hayashi, Miryam Sas, Mika Yoshitake.

Tokyo 1955–1970: A New Avant-Garde explores the extraordinary convergence of artists and other creators in Japan’s capital city during the radically transformative postwar period. Examining works from a range of media--painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, printmaking, video and film, as well as graphic design, architecture, musical composition and dance--this is the first publication in English to focus in depth on the full scope of postwar art in Japan. During this period, Tokyo was a vibrant hub that attracted such critical artistic figures as Taro Okamoto, Hiroshi Nakamura, Ay-O, Yoko Ono, Mieko Shiomi and Tetsumi Kudo; photographers Daido Moriyama, Eikoh Hosoe and Shomei Tomatsu; illustrators and graphic designers Tadanori Yokoo, Kohei Sugiura and Kiyoshi Awazu; and architects Arata Isozaki and Kisho Kurokawa; as well as many important artists’ collectives. Curator Doryun Chong’s essay investigates Tokyo’s sociopolitical context and the massive urban changes that set the stage for the city to emerge as a vital node in the international avant-garde network. Essays by scholars Hayashi Michio and Miryam Sas and curator Mika Yoshitake discuss critical concepts in art and culture at this time, including “graphism,” which manifested itself across various mediums; the development of new sculptural languages; and the “intermedia” tendency that engendered provocative cross-pollination among artistic genres. Masatoshi Nakajima provides an illustrated chronology and Yuri Mitsuda supplies artist biographies. Tokyo 1955–1970: A New Avant-Garde brings fresh insight to this dynamic metropolis during a time of remarkable artistic burgeoning.

Operating at the intersections of dance, art and performance for nearly 40 years, acclaimed Japanese movement/performance artists Eiko & Koma have built up an enormously influential body of movement-theater productions, including theatrically staged performances, site works, dance videos, gallery-based performance installations and collaborations with leading music, dance and visual artists.

Tetsumi Kudo: Garden of MetamorphosisTetsumi Kudo: Garden of Metamorphosis

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited and with text by Doryun Chong. Text by Mike Kelley, Hiroko Kudo.

Tetsumi Kudo: Garden of Metamorphosis accompanies the first solo museum presentation of this highly original but under-studied artist's work in the United States. Organized by the Walker Art Center in close collaboration with Hiroko Kudo, the artist's widow, it features approximately 70 works covering the full trajectory of his amazingly productive career, which spanned from the late 1950s through the 80s. Born in Japan, Kudo first gained notoriety in the Tokyo art scene of the late 50s. He immigrated to Paris in 1962, working in a range of media--objects, sculpture, installation, drawing and painting--and presenting numerous Happenings and performances. Kudo's work and activities intersect with many important postwar artistic trends--including French Nouveau Réalisme, Fluxus, Pop art, 60s anti-art tendencies and 80s Postmodernism. Throughout his life and career, Kudo remained particularly Japanese while his art and vision were consistently and uniquely transcultural, internationalist and cosmopolitan. This beautifully designed exhibition catalogue includes an essay examining Kudo's philosophy, the evolution of his artistic vocabulary and his place in art history by curator Doryun Chong; a reflection by artist Mike Kelley; a selection of Kudo's writings, interviews with the artist and other historical criticism; and an illustrated chronology by Hiroko Kudo.

Brave New WorldsBrave New Worlds

Published by Walker Art Center.
Text by Doryun Chong, Yasmil Raymond.

Addressing contemporary international art beyond glib expressions of globalism, Brave New Worlds assesses the current state of political consciousness and its multivalent artistic manifestations in an era characterized by the unraveling of a unified world order. Guided by the questions "How do we know?," "How do we experience?" and "How do we dream about the world?," 24 artists from Southeastern Europe to South America, from the Middle East to East Asia and from North Africa to North America propose their own answers in paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations and videos. The catalogue includes several brief "correspondent" essays, inspired by newspaper reports and penned by an international cast of young art historians, critics and curators, including Max Andrews and Mariana Canepa Luna (Spain), Cecilia Brunson (Chile), Hu Fang (China), Tone Hansen (Norway), Mihnea Mircan (Romania) and José Roca (Colombia). Recent texts by philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah, celebrated author and activist Arundhati Roy and award-winning foreign correspondent Janine di Giovanni provide additional perspectives on global affairs of the past decade. In addition, Brave New Worlds features an artist insert by Lia Perjovschi of Romania, entitled "Subjective Art History from Modernism to Today," and entries on each individual artist.

House of Oracles: A Huang Yong Ping RetrospectiveHouse of Oracles: A Huang Yong Ping Retrospective

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited by Philippe Vergne and Doryun Chong. Essays by Hou Hanru, Fei Dawei, Huang Yong Ping and Philippe Vergne. Foreword by Kathy Halbreich.

This first monograph to look back over Huang Yong Ping's work to date finally brings the full range of his accomplishments to an international audience. As a contemporary artist in China working with diverse traditions and new and ancient media, Huang has built an artistic universe comprised of provocative installations that challenge the viewer to reconsider everything from the idea of art to national identity to recent history. He was once one of the leading figures of the Xiamen Dada movement--a collective of artists working to create a new Chinese cultural identity by bridging trends in Western modernism with Chinese traditions of Zen and Taoism. He continues to confront established definitions of history and aesthetics with sculptures and installations that draw on the legacies of Joseph Beuys, Arte Povera, and John Cage as well as traditional Chinese art and philosophy, juxtaposing traditional objects, iconic images, and modern references. House of Oracles echoes that blend by binding photographs, essays, and striking sketchbook pages, which are presented with translations of the artist's calligraphy, in a matte soft cover with two facing spines--it opens with the plates on one side and the essays and artist writings on the other.

Expanding the Center: Walker Art Center and Herzog & de MeuronExpanding the Center: Walker Art Center and Herzog & de Meuron

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited by Andrew Blauvelt. Essays by Andrew Blauvelt, Steve Dietz, Sarah Schultz and Robin Dowden. Conversations with Philippe Vergne, Richard Flood, Doryun Chong, Pitor Szhakski and Rich Shelton. Foreword by Kathy Halbreich.

The Walker Art Center recently opened its expanded space, which includes a new theater, a new restaurant and more galleries, but is best known for being Herzog & de Meuron's first public building in the United States. The project drew national coverage from media including The New York Times. Expanding the Center addresses this public interest in the building with a generous selection of images, including sketches, renderings and photographs of the construction process and the completed work. Herzog & de Meuron's shimmering but grounded design mirrors the textures and shades of the Walker's original space, and an institutional philosophy based in innovation and risk-taking, the exploration of alternative approaches to learning, the experimental use of technologies to communicate information, and the design of spaces to enhance a variety of museum experiences. The book is organized around the decisions and actions of the architects, builders, Walker staff and the audience--i.e. designing, constructing, unveiling, staging, gathering, patterning, framing, collecting--and highlights the thinking that led to the visible form of the Center as well as the innovative projects and initiatives that give it its inimitable character.
