The Foundation for Centripetal Art
Mission Statement

The Foundation for Centripetal Art was formed in 2008 by Rafael Chodos and Junko Chodos, with a mission to promote the serious discussion of art in the United States and around the world. The Foundation’s activities include sponsoring lecture/discussion programs in venues where serious issues concerning contemporary art are discussed (see the Symposia page, and placing Junko’s art works in suitable public venues (see the Permanent Collections page).

This new concept of art and art’s role in society was born out of the lifelong spiritual and creative experience of the artist, Junko Chodos, whose corpus of over a thousand works, and whose writings, document her active engagement with these ideas. She coined the term “centripetal art” in 1998 and her definition of the term is found here.

For a fuller account of how Centripetal Art is a response to the developments of the last half of the twentieth century, and of its place in history, see the attached short paper, "What is Centripetal Art?"
