Gutai: splendid playground. Guggenheim.
Gutai members sought to break free from the rigid mindset of wartime Japan by radically expanding our understanding of what art was and who could make it, encouraging viewers to participate in artistic creation. In the spirit of Gutai, Please Draw Freely, an interactive page on the museum’s web site, invites you to create art with people from around the world. To begin, choose to start a new drawing or to add to an existing one. Each week, we are choosing a theme to inspire you as you collaborate with Gutai artists Takesada Matsutani, Norio Imai, and Sadaharu Horio. Last week, drawers Savia-mahajan, mgsmtg, and Sholto created these drawings for the theme “Gutai-inspired.” [ This week, the theme is “the Guggenheim building.” ] Make a drawing using that theme for your chance to be featured Friday
