Daan van Golden – Made in Tokyo
From April 27 till May 6 Gallery Misako & Rosen in Tokyo presents a solo exhibition of artist Daan van Golden. Daan van Golden spent the years of 1963-64 living and working in Tokyo; prior to this time, Van Golden had exhibited within the Netherlands a well regarded body of abstract, expressionistic paintings executed in a restrained palette of black and white. During his time in Tokyo, Van Golden created, in a deliberate and meditative manner, a series of highly formal paintings based upon the designs of Japanese cloths and department store and product wrapping paper. This marked the beginning of Van Golden’s lifelong engagement with a radically creative practice of art finding.
The exhibition is financially supported by the Mondriaan Fund with a grant program International Presentations.
