About the exhibition

Yoshio Nakajima (* 1940) is among the pioneers of Happenings in Japan and Northern Europe, even though his name is missing from almost all anthologies and art histories concerned. He is one of the great unknowns, who has always been positioned at the hub of avant-garde innovations, yet has been ignored and forgotten by those who make art history – and history is always made.

This retrospective is dedicated to his early performative works from the 1950s in Japan up to the 1970s in Europe. 

Brus Collections Exhibition – in parallel with Yoshio Nakajima

The BRUSEUM owns the most extensive museum collection on the life and work of the artist in existence, and is dedicated as an institution to the preservation of and research into his work, as well as educating others and presenting the same.

The changing selection of collection items in the BRUSEUM’s first room shows the continuity of motives and working processes of his artistic output that spans more than five decades.

In 2017 there will be three exhibitions curated by Roman Grabner.
