The Japanese-American artist Shinkichi Tajiri (1923, Los Angeles, California, USA – 2009, Baarlo, Netherlands) would have turned 100 in 2023. This milestone is celebrated with "Shinkichi Tajiri: The Restless Wanderer." Through Shinkichi's profound life story, his grandchildren, Tanéa and Shakuru, elucidate the diverse body of work by the versatile artist in this exhibition. Dozens of pieces from his Warriors, Seeds, Machines, and Knot series are on display, complemented by new, previously unseen material from the Tajiri family archive. The exhibition also includes anecdotes and works from fellow artists and inspirations, including Isamu Noguchi, Karel Appel, Constant, Lucebert, and Julio González.
To truly understand Shinkichi's work, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey 100 years back in time.
