STARS: Six Contemporary Artists from Japan to the World – Stars are Not Made Overnight!
This event has ended.
This exhibition features six artists whose careers propelled them beyond the confines of Japan, earning them high acclaim today around the world, and across generations, tracing their journey from their earliest to the latest works. STARS explores how the practice of each artist has been evaluated in the global context, and touch upon these artists’ pursuit of universal issues transcending nationality, culture, traditions, aesthetics, technology, and subculture, while keeping in mind aspects of social, cultural, and economic factors unique and particular to Japan.
The exhibition also presents archival materials related to the major Japanese contemporary art shows staged internationally from the 1950s to the present, examining the bases for evaluating art and the historical lineage of exhibitions over the decades.
