  3. [Monograph] Tetsumi Kudo: Garden of Metamorphosis

    Tetsumi Kudo: Garden of Metamorphosis is the first solo museum exhibition of the late artist’s work in the United States, which introduces Kudo to American audiences while expanding our understanding of many possible alternative narratives of 20th-century art. Kudo bridged many disparate artistic tendencies in the latter half of the 20th century- French Nouveau Réalisme, Fluxus, Pop Art - without specifically belonging to or identifying with any of them. While his art and vision were consistently and uniquely transcultural, international, and cosmopolitan, he remained, in his private thinking and public persona, an eternal outsider. Ultimately, what Kudo hoped to discover and develop was a universal humanist language of creativity and regeneration in a post-nuclear world. And that hope still resonates, perhaps even more critically in this new century, almost 20 years after his death. The 304-page catalogue features an overview essay by Doryun Chong, a richly illustrated chronology by the artist’s widow, Hiroko Kudo, and a reflection by artist Mike Kelley. The book, with, 100 color plates and 105 black-and-white illustrations, also includes several of Tetsumi Kudo’s statements, manifestos, and interviews, many of them translated into English for the first time.  - Walker Art Center
