Lévy Gorvy is pleased to present an exhibition of Kazuo Shiraga’s paintings in London, marking the artist’s first solo exhibition in the city in a decade. A selection of Shiraga’s forceful gestural canvases, mostly dating to the early 1960s, a period when the artist was gaining international attention, will be on view beginning 3 February 2017. This marks the inaugural London exhibition under Dominique Lévy
and Brett Gorvy’s recently announced partnership; this is the gallery’s second exhibition of Shiraga’s work, following the critically acclaimed 2015 exhibition, Body and Matter: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Satoru Hoshino in New York, for which Dominique Lévy Gallery published the first ever comprehensive English-language monograph on the artist.
