Art opening reception: Universe Is Flux: The Art of Tawara Yūsaku

Asia Society Texas Center

Asia Society Texas Center opens a major exhibition of the work of Tawara Yusaku (1932-2004), a Japanese artist whose evocative gestural paintings convey the world as unstable and constantly changing. Organized by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, where it debuted, Universe Is Flux: The Art of Tawara Yusaku comprises 77 works, mostly ink on paper, and constitutes the first large-scale exhibition in this country of the artist's paintings.

A highlight of the evening will be a site-specific gallery performance beginning at 7:30 p.m. by Mercury - The Orchestra Redefined. The orchestra will perform a special program of contemplative music on period instruments inspired by Tawara's work and philosophy.

On view through Sept. 15.
