Yutaka Matsuzawa (1922–2006) was considered the father of Japanese conceptual art. In his pursuit of ways to express the invisible invisibly, Matsuzawa developed a unique understanding of conceptual art that both elevated and transcended the typical notions of conceptual art in the western, euro-centric art worlds.
A new edition of Yutaka Matsuzawa’s groundbreaking book, Quantum Art Manifesto was published on the occasion of the exhibition Yutaka Matsuzawa at Yale Union, curated by Alan Longino and Reiko Tomii. Including the original Japanese text, the original English translation (with minor edits), a foreword by Haruo Matsuzawa, and an essay by Reiko Tomii.
Offset printed by Gary Robbins at Container Corps with tipped-in color fields and Matsuzawa’s Psi stamp. Exposed spine Smyth-sewn binding. Dust jacket letterpressed by Aaron Flint Jamison. This new edition of the publication is now also out of print. Images of the exhibition can be seen here. And a text by Alan Longino on Yutaka Matsuzawa can be found here.
