Internationally acclaimed contemporary Chinese born artist Cai Guo-Qiang is set to amaze art enthusiasts with his highly anticipated solo exhibition, “Ramble in the Cosmos - From Primeval Fireball Onward,” opening on June 29, 2023, at the National Art Center, Tokyo (NACT). This groundbreaking exhibition is a collaborative effort between NACT and the iconic fashion house, Saint Laurent, showcasing the seamless blend of fashion and art and the House’s commitment to supporting the arts.
Cai Guo-Qiang’s artistic journey has been shaped by his fascination with the universe, the unseen world, and the interplay between ancient Eastern philosophies and modern science and technology. Renowned for his innovative use of gunpowder as an artistic medium, Cai's large-scale paintings, installations, and outdoor explosion projects have garnered global recognition for their mythological and anthropological narratives, as well as their thought-provoking reflections on contemporary social issues.
