Electrifying Art: Atsuko Tanaka, 1954–1968, $75.00

A leading figure in postwar Japanese art and a founding member of the Gutai group of avant-garde artists, Tanaka explores issues that dominated the 1960s, such as the expressive limits of the body, the use of technology, and the notion of interactivity. Staging exhibitions outside traditional spaces and creating proto-Happening performance pieces, Gutai artists radically extended the notion of painting and, indeed, the definition of art itself.
