Hisachika Takahashi

I need your help. I ran through the catalog Aspects de l’art actuel, Paris Festival d’Automne (1973) and saw this┬áspread by Hisachika Takahashi (b. 1940). Not much information about him online. He worked with Lucio Fontana on a really great Concetto Spaziale painting in 1966, he collaborated with Robert Rauschenberg for a show in Israel and was his assistant, and he is mentioned within the context of New York’s alternative art space 112 Workshop and was in a group show at White Columns in 1972. The most complete entry I found is this. Takahashi seemed to have cooked at Gordon Matta-Clark’s Food restaurant in the 1970s, so is the artist the same as the chef? Do you know more? Thanks!


I just found these few pages out of a catalog that I wanted to share. And thanks to Jeff from White Columns for this link, check it out!
