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.

KIM LIM
Sep 28 - Nov 16, 2018
Private view Thu Sep 27 6.30pm - 8.30pm
Autumn at S|2 London will see a second solo exhibition of
works by Singaporean-British artist, Kim Lim. Filling the entire
gallery, it will focus on her exploration of form through her
marble and stone-carved sculptures. The balance of rhythm
and order in Kim Lim’s work sought to draw parallels with the
patterns and structures she encountered in both nature and
daily life. To accompany the exhibition, S|2 London will publish
the first major monograph on Kim Lim’s work.
