NANZUKA / James Jarvis ” Hello Bauhaus ” PARCO MUSEUM TOKYO

NANZUKA is pleased to announce its curation of British artist James Jarvis’s solo exhibition, “Hello Bauhaus” at PARCO MUSEUM TOKYO (Shibuya PARCO 4F).

Born in 1970, James Jarvis is an illustrator and artist who bases his practice in London, U.K. His distinctive style has gained wide recognition and acclaim internationally through various collaborations including the likes of Amos, NIKE, Uniqlo, and IKEA.

Jarvis’ innovative and pioneering means of expression that combine cartoon-style illustrations and original character figures is indeed noteworthy considering today’s constantly transforming and expanding context of contemporary art. From philosophical thinking to various languages, history, social issues, popular culture, art, architecture, and even skateboarding, Jarvis’ characters that draw inspiration from such interests, despite being extremely simple in their nature, present themselves as eloquent, comical, and ironical reflections of ourselves.

As a parody of the “Bauhaus”—a German educational institution which established rationality and functionalism as beauty of style in all genres from design to fine art, the tile of the exhibition reflects Jarvis’ attempt to engage with Japanese “Kawaii” culture. In this exhibition, Jarvis presents installations and paintings featuring characters that embody a homage to the “Kawaii” style, which has now become term that is widely recognized and used throughout the world.

This exhibition marks Jarvis’ first solo exhibition at PARCO MUSEUM in 22 years since his previous show “World of Pain” held in 2000.
