This event has ended.

Held triennially since 2004, “Roppongi Crossing” is an exhibition series that offers a comprehensive survey of the Japanese art scene. The 4th in this series, “Roppongi Crossing 2013” inquires into the “current state” of Japanese contemporary art, referencing history and global perspectives and reflecting the social awareness that has clearly been heightened since the triple disaster of the Great East Japan Earthquake. What kinds of productive discussions can arise through art from the doubt now being expressed about all manner of generally accepted ideas and existing systems? Such questions are investigated through the art practice of 29 artists/groups – focusing on those born in the 70s and ‘80s, but also including representatives of different generations, as well as expatriate Japanese artists – all coming together to examine the kind of landscape that will emerge in the next, unpredictable stage in Japan’s history.

Artists: Genpei Akasegawa, Akira Akira, Takashi Arai, Ei Arakawa and Shimon Minamikawa, Yoko Asakai, Masaya Chiba, Ichiro Endo, Simon Fujiwara, Sohei Iwata×Prominority, Taro Izumi, Teppei Kaneuji, Sachiko Kazama, Fumiko Kobayashi, Meiro Koizumi, Haruo Mitsuta, Chihiro Mori, Takuma Nakahira, Hiroshi Nakamura , Yuta Nakamura, Yoshinori Niwa, Yuki Okumura, Project FUKUSHIMA!, Koji Ryui, Aki Sasamoto, Motoyuki Shitamichi, Kishio Suga, Mika Tajima, Masato Takasaka, Yukinori Yanagi
