GALLERY SOAP is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Yasuhide Moriyama, an artist who lives and works in Kitakyushu. In 1960’s Moriyama formed Anti-Art group named “Shudan Kumo” (Spider Group). Active between 1968 - 1973, the group is known for its extreme and sometimes explicit public performance. After he dismantled the group, he stopped any art activities and remained absent from the public light for 15 years. In 1987 he suddenly started painting and came back to the art scene. Since then he has made hundreds of paintings until now. This year, from May to June, his retrospective was held at Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Art, presenting painting works through his 30 years career as a painter. In the exhibition at SOAP, we will present selected works mainly not shown in his retrospective in the museum.
