作為極簡主義的代表藝術家之一,桑山忠明甫受邀展出作品於新加坡國家美術館《極簡主義:空間.光線.物體》展覽中,原本在東京藝術大學學習日本畫的他於1958年與同為藝術家的妻子內藤樂子移居紐約,在紐約他除探索美國當代藝術亦同時創造自己獨特的風格。在《形於無》展覽裡,觀者所體驗到的,只不過是桑山在正方形、矩形、柱狀,以及經測量的幾何形狀系列上所呈現的顏色。而對於這些色彩和形狀的理解、它們如何影響觀者,以及觀看時所產生的想像,是完全取決於觀者自己。藝術家桑山忠明希望製造一個特定的空間 ,一種由他的作品帶出的「虛無」,介於觀者以及牆上的物件之間的氛圍。

白石畫廊台北空間很榮幸地宣布將於2019年5月25日至7月7日,舉辦桑山忠明與內藤樂子的雙個展《形於無》。本展由辛辛那堤美術博物館前館長亞倫・貝茨基擔任策展人。並於展覽期間5月28日舉辦對談,除了兩位藝術家與策展人之外,亦邀請到知名日本建築師隈研吾與獨立策展人王玉齡共同參與。

Date|May 25–July 7, 2019

Venue|WhitestoneGallery Taipei Neihu, 1F, No.1, Jihu Rd., Neihu Dist., Taipei City, 114, Taiwan.

As one of the representative artists of minimalism, Tadaaki Kuwayama was invited to show his works in “Minimalism: Space. Light. Object”, National Gallery of Singapore. He studied Nihonga in Tokyo National University of Art. In 1958, he moves to New York with his wife and fellow artist, Rakuko Naito. He discovers the contemporary art scene in America and creates his own distinctive style. What you experience at “Beautiful Nothing” is nothing more or less than color, which Kuwayama presents in squares, rectangles, and columns, as well as the measured series of such geometric shapes. What you make of those colors and forms, how they affect you, or what you imagine based on your observations, is up to you. The artist hopes only to create a certain space –an emptiness filled with all his art brings forth, between you and the object on the wall.

Whitestone Gallery is pleased to hold a joint exhibition of Tadaaki Kuwayama and Rakuko Naito from May 25 to July 7, 2019. It is curated by Aaron Betsky who is the former director of the Cincinnati Art Museum. Also, the world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma and the independent curator Wang Yuling have been invited to join in a panel discussion.
