Contemporary Japanese Art Exhibition ''Winter Garden''
December 15, 2017
The Embassy of Japan in BiH cordially announces a contemporary Japanese art exhibition “Winter Garden: The Exploration of the Micropop Imagination in Contemporary Japanese Art” which will take place from 10 (Wed.) to 24 (Wed.) January, 2018, at the National Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo.
The exhibition features 35 works (drawings, paintings, sculptures, and video works) by 14 young Japanese artists active from 1990 until 2010.
The artists, presenting their distinctive views of the world through the combination of fragments and imbuing the obsolete or the commonplace with new functions or meanings, share a similar style of expression. How do Japanese artists, living in an increasingly globalized world and in a time when shared values are hard to establish, see our contemporary world? We hope that visitors to the “Winter Garden” exhibition will nurture the understanding of empathy with the insights and perspectives of the artists through the exhibited works.
