Date: 2023-08-26 through 2023-11-19 Venue: Power Station of Art, Shanghai Contemporary Art Museum Address: 678 Miaojiang Road, Huangpu District, Shanghai, 200011 Background Arata Isozaki was born in Oita, Japan, in 1931 and sadly passed away in 2022. He graduated from the Architecture Department of the University of Tokyo in 1954 and went on to establish the Arata Isozaki Studio in 1963. As a prominent figure in the international architecture scene, he designed numerous remarkable structures, including the Gunma Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and the main stadium for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, known as the Palau Sant Jordi. As the recipient of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2019, he extended Japan's architectural influence worldwide throughout the 20th century. Event Descriptions The exhibition "Arata Isozaki: In Formation" took place at the Power Station of Art (PSA) in Shanghai from August 26, 2023, to November 19, 2023. It marked the first global retrospective of Arata Isozaki's work, following his unfortunate passing at the end of 2022. Interestingly, in 2015, the Power Station of Art hosted an exhibition for Issey Miyake, further connecting the museum to Japanese art and architecture. "Arata Isozaki: In Formation" showcased over 200 pieces of work that spanned various fields, including architecture, urban planning, art, literature, and design, illustrating the evolution of Arata Isozaki's thinking and creative styles across different periods. The exhibition's theme, "In Formation," mirrors the continuous evolution of Arata Isozaki's ideas and practices rather than a static state. In the Chinese interpretation, "In Formation" can be understood as the shaping of form, the process of composition, and "MA," an essential dimension in Japanese culture.
