In the 80’s Japanese conceptual artist Akasegawa Genpei released HYPERART: THOMASSON, a book investigating and describing an urban architectural phenomenon called a “Thomasson.” (Read more about Thomassons here) To celebrate Kaya Press’ publication of the first English translation of HYPERART: THOMASSON, KSW is producing “SF Thomassons,” a two-phase project that includes a set of photographs by KSW artists of local Thomassons and a guided performance tour of a selection of these Thomassons.
The complete guided tour will be performed January 23 & 24. To launch the book, we are holding a holiday reception, with music, an opportunity to buy the book, and a short preview of the tour. Come drink some punch with SF’s Asian American arts community before we break for the holidays, and do a little last minute gift shopping!
