‘Future Willing 2020 Masako Yasuki Chaos from Order, Order from Chaos’

We are pleased to announce the publication of 'Future Willing 2020: Masako Yasuki – Chaos from Order, Order from Chaos'. This introduction to Yasuki’s work focusses on two solo exhibitions held in Kyoto in autumn 2020.

Through a variety of commentaries by a range of experts in the art field, the book sets her paintings within the wider societal and historical context. The text is richly illustrated with photographs to provide a tangible sense of being physically present at the exhibitions, and comes in two versions, Japanese and English. These are packaged and published together as companion volumes.
