At Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore, Yasuhide Moriyama, an artist who has left a vivid footprint in Japanese postwar art history as a core member of the avant-garde group "Group Spider" in Fukuoka and Kitakyushu since the latter half of the 1960s. ) Will be held with the cooperation of GALLERY SOAP in Kokura, Kitakyushu.

Yasuhide Moriyama was born in 1936 in Yawata City (currently Yahatahigashi Ward, Kitakyushu City). In 1968, he participated in the "Group Spider" with local artists, and repeated radical happenings that rejected all artistic expressions, targeting existing art groups, authorities, and even the avant-garde movement of the same era.

This exhibition is composed of paintings that Moriyama worked on after resuming activities in 1987, and follows the solo exhibition "Yasuhide Moriyama Dismantling and Regeneration" held at the Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Art in 2018. This will be a valuable opportunity for my solo exhibition at 1994 since 1994.

We hope that Moriyama's activities, which have had a great influence on postwar art, will give us an opportunity to reconsider the history of Japanese art.
