Exhibition: A long home­com­ing: een eeuw Shin­kichi Tajiri, Museum van Bommel van Dam, Venlo, NL

After many years of wandering, Japanese-American artist Shinkichi Tajiri finally found his home in a North Limburg castle, Castle Scheres. In honour of his 100th birthday, museum van Bommel van Dam presents a unique centenary exhibition focusing on this important period of his life. A long homecoming: the Shinkichi Tajiri centenary gives an impression of life behind the castle walls and tells visitors more about the development of Tajiri’s famous warriors, knots, towers and machines. There are more than 50 sculptures, photos, graphics, drawings and films, some from the museum’s own collection and others on loan. The exhibition also includes work by the artist friends that Tajiri regularly welcomed to Baarlo, such as Karel Appel and Dorothy Iannone, as well as brightly coloured Hortisculptures by his partner, Ferdi, a fine artist.

Curated by: Frank van der Schoor and James Hannan

Visit the exhibition between 2 December 2023 - 22 March 2024. For more information click here.
