GUTAI at Guggenheim Museum - " 具体" グッゲンンハイム美術館

The Exhibition of Gutai: Splendid Playground will be closed in May 8th at Guggenheim Museum. If you don't have a chance to see it yet, do not miss it!
I went to a private opening "GUTAI" in February was great. I was very impressed. It's explored new art forms combining performance, painting, and creating some objects. 
The GUTAI Art Association had had activity from 1954 to 1972, however the most of artworks look a  very fresh to me.And it's unique that the Gutai Card Box is an interactive vending machine made in 1962 that dispenses original artworks in the form of hand-

painted cards. To deposit a 10-yen coin in exchange for a premade postcard-size work by a Gutai member. Proceeds were donated to a children’s art charity at the time.
関西を中心に1954年から1972年活動していた前衛的な集団”具体” のエキシビションが、ニューヨークのグッゲンハイム美術館で現在も開催中。
