AWAZU Kiyoshi: What Can Design Do, at 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Ishikawa

AWAZU Kiyoshi: What Can Design Do, at 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Ishikawa

18th May - 23rd September, 2019 | 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Ishikawa
With approximately 3,000 works and reference materials related to AWAZU Kiyoshi donated to its collection from 2006 until present, The 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa has continued to engage in on-going surveys and research regarding Awazu’s life and oeuvre. In 2007, the museum held the special exhibition “Graphism in Wilderness: KIYOSHI AWAZU” which presented over 1,750 principle works by Awazu from the collection alongside accounts and interviews with individuals who had been involved in various aspects of his practice, while organized workshops and performances were also hosted throughout its duration. 
Through the “AWAZU Kiyoshi: Makurihirogeru (EXPOSE)” series held in five installments from 2014 to 2018, the museum had focused on respective themes of performance, architecture, and photography among others in order to diversely explore and introduce the world of Awazu’s work. 

In 2019, 10 years since Awazu’s passing, the museum is once again pleased to present an exhibition of Awazu Kiyoshi’s work as a comprehensive culmination of its long-term investigation and research. Inviting AWAZU Ken as supervisor, the exhibition serves to shed light upon the essence of Awazu Kiyoshi’s designs through his gaze towards the masses that penetrates his work, and from perspectives that contemplate “means for designing society.” Such perspectives are indeed important for us too, living in current times. 
Furthermore, in correspondence to the exhibition, the museum will open its entire Awazu Kiyoshi archive database to the public, even enabling images of some works to be downloaded. Through the exhibition medium, we in this moment attempt to “expose” the very ideas and philosophies of Awazu who had regarded duplication as “the icon of the masses,” liberated from confinements of hierarchy.
