Tadashi Kawamata, Yukihisa Isobe, Oscar Oiwa, Teppei Kaneuji @ The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo

2019/06/02

Tadashi Kawamata, Yukihisa Isobe, Oscar Oiwa and Teppei Kaneuji have been participating in the group exhibition "Weavers of Worlds" at The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo from 29 March - 16 June 2019.

(For available works of Kawamata, Isobe, Oiwa and Kaneuji, please visit artist page of Art Front Gallery: Click here)

This exhibition will survey the Japanese art of the past 100 years, from the 1910s to 2010s, through works mainly in the museum's collection. Its aim to show how the artists, by taking a discerning critical perspective, have selected strands of already established and radically new styles and techniques, and woven their own distinctive worlds. From the 1920s era of KISHIDA Ryusei to the present day, artists in each generation have studied the issues specific to their time and created works that critically examine the "circumstances of Japanese art."
In its narrative on modern and contemporary Japanese art, the exhibition will not situate the artists in the context of a static view of history; instead it will look at the particular practice of the artist who, by selectively adopting elements, was able to arouse his subject. It will furthermore display artworks whose subject matter relates to the Kiba district where the museum is located, a community that has witnessed dramatic change these 100 years. By surveying the artistically important works that punctuate Japanese modern / contemporary art history, in galleries on all three of the museum's floors, the exhibition will profile the history of one hundred years.
