Yokoo Tadanori The Artists

In partnership with 21_21 Design Sight in Tokyo, The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presents a solo exhibition dedicated to internationally renowned artist Yokoo Tadanori from July 21 to October 17 2021. Entitled The Artists, the exhibition presents a series of over a hundred portraits of artists, thinkers, critics, scientists and others who have marked the Fondation Cartier’s 36 years history.

As a series, the paintings demonstrate remarkable stylistic variety and will be shown in a spatial design elaborated in close collaboration with the artist. Upon entering the exhibition, the viewer will encounter the artistic universe of Yokoo Tadanori. The ongoing series commissioned in 2014 will be shown in Japan for the first time, fifteen years after Yokoo Tadanori’s solo exhibition at the Fondation Cartier. The Artists is thus a testament to the longstanding relationships within the artistic community surrounding the Fondation Cartier, seen through the eyes of Yokoo Tadanori.
