This week on DUOS! we have something really special for you guys, especially if you are in the Dallas, TX area! Artists Noriko & Ushio Shinohara are set to release a brand spankin’ new exhibition, right off the heals of their recent portrayed documentary success Cutie and the Boxer in Dallas. The film documents the tumultuous woes of marriage and their lives together as artists. Ushio Shinohara, born in 1932 Japan, is a Japanese neo-dadaist artist who relocated to the United States in 1969 and has lived and worked here ever since. Noriko Shinohara, born in 1952 and also from Japan, moved to New York in 1972 to study art and ended up meeting Ushio soon after in 1973 – artistic love at first site! The two have been together and creatively pushing themselves and their work ever since.
