Japanese art collective Art Unidentified (AU) group show at Whitestone Gallery in Taipei

The Japanese art group Artist Union, or AU, was established by Masunobu Yoshimura along with other artists in 1975. However, it was found out later on that the name of the group was easily mistaken for a labor organization. Hence, the name of the group was changed to Art Unidentified, while still keeping the AU abbreviation. The late Japanese action painter Shozo Shimamoto, the founding member of the GUTAI Group and AU director, considered AU as a platform for artistic endeavors that provides artists opportunities and network with the world. Today, AU continues to welcome young and emerging artists.

The pieces collected below are part of the exhibit Shozo Shimamoto x AU Brother in Arms at Whitestone Gallery in Taipei.
