It was at the 8th Gutai Exhibition where Mukai appeared for the first time, and he participated in every subsequent Gutai exhibition until the group’s dissolution. Mukai’s works are composed of various types of symbols that fill the canvas, spaces, and sometimes the body of the artist himself. Mukai established his own style early on in his career, with an exquisite installation at the 10th Gutai Exhibition (1961), a solo exhibition at the Gutai Pinacotheca (1962), and his take on a Jazz café entitled “Check” (1966), among others. In 1969, the artist executed his large-scale action artwork in which he burned tableaus. Thus, Mukai’s stance has always been ahead of its time. Mukai’s installations at the Guggenheim Museum’s retrospective exhibition “Gutai: Splendid Playground” (2013), and at several exhibitions of the Venice Biennale, as well as at Proportio at Palazzo Fortuny (2015), are still fresh in our minds. In 2017, Mukai contributed installation works to the renovation of Louis Vuitton’s SOHO boutique in New York City (curated by architect Peter Marino), and he is highly acclaimed in various fields.
