  • 【Upcoming】NOBUYA ABE 1913-1971: Insatiable Quest beyond Borders

    Nobuya Abe (1913-1971), an artist who was active before and after World War II, was acclaimed for Fairy’s Distance, a 1937 book of poems and pictures he made with Shuzo Takiguchi. He also demonstrated a prodigious talent for avant-garde photography. Passing through a bewildering number of stylistic changes after the war, from Surrealism to Art Informel to geometric abstraction, Abe was also instrumental in introducing Japan to new art trends from abroad. Abe developed a radical artistic practice based on an international perspective without limiting himself to a single sphere of activity. This exhibition examines the entire career of this versatile figure.
