Splendid Playground is the title of a retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York that highlights the work of Japan's avant-garde collective Gutai. Gutai was founded by Yoshihara Jirō in 1954. From 1954 until 1972, the group totaled 59 Japanese artists, who explored new art forms combining performance, painting, and interactive environments. The name "Gutai" literally means "concreteness" and stands for the direct engagement with materials its members were experimenting with. One of the major works on display is Motonaga Sadamasa's Work (Water) (1956/2011), a large scale sculptural installation made of polyethylene tubes filled with brightly-colored water that the artist recreated for the rotunda of the Guggenheim museum. This video provides you with a walk through the exhibition on the occasion of the press preview. The exhibition Gutai: Splendid Playground at the Guggenheim Museum in New York runs until May 8, 2013.
