Japanese Avant-Garde Art Exhibition / Łaźnia 1


It has been exactly 50 years since Fluorescent Chrysanthemum was presented at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London. Selected works by Japanese avant-garde artists showcased at the time will soon be on display at ŁAŹNIA 1 CCA in Gdańsk, at the exhibition under the extended title Fluorescent Chrysanthemum Remembered.

The title of the exhibition refers to the fluorescent effects used in the works of Japanese artists and monshō (the Japanese equivalent of an emblem) in the form of a chrysanthemum. The exhibition at ŁAŹNIA 1 CCA will include photographs, films, calendars, books, vinyl record covers, graphic works, sheet music and documentation of the 1968 exhibition by Kohei Sugiura (designer of the London exhibition) and Katsushiro Yamagochi, among others.
