THE PLAY since 1967: beyond unknown currents

October 22, 2016 - January 15, 2017

This will be the first museum exhibition devoted solely to the work of THE PLAY, a group that has been active in the Kansai area since 1967. This one-of-a-kind band of artists has continued to perform actions without any lasting form for close to 50 years. These include floating down a river on a polystyrene raft, traveling around with a sheep, and waiting for lightning to strike. The exhibition will present the entire range of the group’s activities using printed matter, video documents, and life-size materials.
