Variation and Autonomy: The Prints of Contemporary Japanese Painters
Exhibition will be open by H.E. Kacumata Takahiko
Curator: Kyoji Takizaw, Machida City Museum of GraphicArts
Organization: Embassy of Japan in Belgrade, The Japan Foundation and Museum of Applied Art
This exhibition introduces the work of ten artists who explored a wide range of possibilities through prints and expanded the range of expression in contemporary art using the print medium in the 1970s. Rather than focusing on specialists who are considered to have shaped the history of contemporary Japanese prints, the exhibition deals with prints by painters who drew on trends in contemporary art and attempts to reassess the existing history of contemporary Japanese prints.
Exhibiting artists :
Masanari Murai, Toshinobu Onosato, Yasukazu Tabuchi, Yayoi Kusama, Natsuyuki Nakanishi, Hitoshi Nakazato, Tomoharu Murakami, Naoyoshi Hikosaka, Kosai Hori, and Toeko Tatsuno.
