Zakkicho, published by Matsumoto Shunsuke, was a freeform,
essay-focused magazine which aimed to provide knowledge in the search
for a comprehensive culture in the contemporary time. This magazine
that often published special articles on themes like humanism, and
which placed a full trust and value in humanity, was synchronic to
Matsumoto's youth and sincerity. This time, we will display works
that were published in Zakkicho. We will also publish and exhibition
catalog (color, 44 pg). The text is written by Komatsuzaki Takuo (art
critic, adjunct professor at Bunkyo University) (Japanese only).
Born in Tokyo and moved to
Morioka, Iwate at the age of 2, where he spent his youth. Became a
member of the avant garde group NOVA in 1935 and was accepted into the
Nika Exhibition for the first time. Married Matsumoto Teiko the
following year; together, they began to publish the essay magazine
Zakkicho (Sogo Kobo, total 14 volumes). In 1943, he and 7 other
artists including Ai-Mitsu, Aso Saburo, and Terada Masaaki established
the Shinjin Gakai, and they held 3 exhibitions together. After the war
in 1946, Matsumoto called for the creation of an artists' association.
In 1947 he and the Shinjin Gakai participated in the establishhment of
the Jiyu Bijiutsu Kyokai. In 1948 he submitted "Sculpture and woman"
and "Building" to Mainichi Shimbun's Rengo Exhibition - these would be
his final works, and he passed away at the age of 36.
