Very scarce Tetsumi Kudo exhibition card/publication produced on the occasion of his solo exhibition at Gallery Kobayashi in Ginza, Tokyo, in 1986. Alongside a detail shot of one of Kudo’s “Chromosomes and Souls”, and a text in Japanese, inserted into the folded card are copies of press clippings from Japanese newspapers relating to the exhibition.
Born in Osaka, Japan, in 1935 Kudo first gained notoriety in the Tokyo art scene of the late 50s. He began exhibiting his work at the Salon of Independents, Yomiuri and had his first solo exhibition at the Galerie Blanche, Tokyo. He was awarded the Grand Prize and a travel grant to Paris through his painting participation in the 1962 Second International Young Artists Exhibition in Tokyo. Immigrating to Paris, he immediately started working in a range of media–objects, sculpture, installation, drawing and painting–and presenting numerous Happenings and performances. Kudo’s work and activities intersect with many important postwar artistic trends–including French Nouveau Realisme, Fluxus, Pop art, 60s anti-art tendencies and 80s Postmodernism. Throughout his life and career, Kudo remained particularly Japanese while his art and vision were consistently and uniquely transcultural, internationalist and cosmopolitan. His work made international appearances at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1972), Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf, Germany, (1970), Venice Biennial (1976), and the Biennial São Paulo (1977, awarded a special mention) while also appearing frequently in museums and galleries throughout Japan and France, with a growing recognition in the Netherlands.
