AG Gallery/About Glamour is pleased to announce that we are having a solo exhibition by Takao Sakata, Japan based glass-work artist, “The Anti-Glasswork Art 2011 in New York” from August 19th through 24th, as a part of the Summer Exhibition Series of Japanese Artists 2011.
“When we look at the glass-work art in these days, I can only see weak, cheap, and flatter works. They are called “modem grass art” or “the world grass art” and seen as if they are the real art. Glass artisans without strong belief and knowledge and the lack of outstanding glass-work art critics obstruct making progress of the art. The substantial of art is to express nature, society and human beings through clear sense and technic. It means the attribute of glass material doesn’t produce any arts. Marcel Duchamp, a French artist, signed that people in this century has been blind completely to the art. It is also the severe criticism to the modern glass art. ” —Takao Sakata
