Japanese artist Ei Arakawa presents a new work with Jutta Koether that continues Arakawa’s recent collaborations with painters like Amy Sillman and Silke Otto-Knapp, where painting forms a backdrop or theatrical prop for a performance. Arakawa experiments with dance, sculpture, drawing, magazine, video and sound and is known for creating social performances and installations that involve both friends and strangers. Arakawa will develop performances and actions inspired by his research into the Jikken Kobo and Gutai groups from 1950s Japan and their relationship to ballet.
