The exhibition will consist of the latest iteration of Minamikawa’s signboard paintings as well as new work in the media of photography,film and painting. While varied in media, the exhibition, as suggested in the aforementioned title, is one form for the presentation of Minamikawa’s further considerations of contemporary painting. Recently, Minamikawa has taken part in the group exhibitions “Artist File 2015”, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul and The National Art Center, Tokyo and “Painting 2.0”, Museum Brandhorst, Munich (with Ei Arakawa) (all 2015-16); “2.0” will travel to MUMOK, Vienna in the summer of 2016.
