> DESCRIPTION

In the West Wing, CvsD presents the Chicago debut of Keiichi Tanaami. Born in Tokyo in 1936, Tanaami has been active as a video artist, animator, designer, and visual artist since the 1960s, and his enormous oeuvre continues to expand with ever stranger images that, since a near-death experience in 1981, have had a bardo-like hallucinatory buzz. This small exhibition spotlights a series of exquisite, over-the-top drawings that Tanaami made in the late 1960s after his first trip to New York. Dazzlingly brazen and oversexed, riffing on the pornographic excesses of American pop culture, these superheated ink outings were much loved by Yamataka Eye of the Boredoms when they were rediscovered in the late 1990s.
