Jul 20 - Sep 21, 2018
This July, S|2 London will present an exhibition of works focusing on the 1970s period by Japanese artist Tsuyoshi Maekawa in Gallery One. Born in 1936 in Osaka, Tsyuoshi Maekawa became a member of the Gutai Art Association in 1962, but joining this now widely recognised artist group was merely the beginning in many ways.
The exhibition at S│2 and accompanying publication is focused primarily on the artist’s post-Gutai practice, with works dating from as early as 1969 through until 1978. The Gutai Group dissolved in 1972 following the passing of its founder Jiro Yoshihara and for many of its members it symbolised the end of an era, but it also paved the way for many of its members to evolve and re-invent their artistic methods and processes, drawing on the fertile and experimental Gutai years as an impetus for a discovery of a new language of materialisation.

This April, S│2 London will present the first UK exhibition of the influential Brazilian artist Flávio de Carvalho. Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1899, Flávio de Carvalho was a painter, sculptor, scenographer, dress designer, journalist, writer and playwright. A veritable polymath, Carvalho used his many talents and eccentric, irreverent forms of expressions to shock the bourgeoisie.

In Gallery Two this April, S│2 London presents a solo exhibition of paintings by Brazilian artist Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato. Born in 1900, Lorenzato was a largely self-taught, outsider artist who’s richly textured and intimate paintings portray observations of everyday life. This exhibition comes at a time when the artist’s work is being reassessed within the context of Brazilian modernism and international art history.
