Baby Gutai

I saw this a couple of weeks ago, then lost it, and not it's found again. Gallerist NY critic Andrew Russeth calls it "Baby Gutai." It's an audience re-staging of Murakami SaburĊ's 1956 Gutai work Passage, where the artist leapt through a series of paper-covered painting stretchers.

It's obviously the playground part of Gutai: Splendid Playground, the Guggenheim's exhibition of the influential Japanese postwar avant-garde art collective's work.
