Pop and Beyond: The Diversity of Japanese Art marks the gallery’s first pop-up project in Singapore, presenting seven Japanese artists who have not shown in Singapore before – Katsumi Hayakawa, Kenichi Yokono Norihiko Terayama, Mari Ito, Toru Fukuda, Eri Ōta (listed by age) and Masako Inoue (age unknown).
The contemporary art scene in Japan has witnessed a flourishing and diverse range of artistic expression over the past two decades. The exhibition ‘Pop and Beyond: The Diversity of Japanese Art’ explores the work of these seven prominent Japanese artists who have made significant contributions to the country’s artistic production during this period.
These artists represent a cross-section of the vibrant and innovative Japanese art landscape, showcasing a variety of media and conceptual approaches. Through their distinctive styles and unique perspectives, they offer insight into the unfolding narratives and experiences that have shaped contemporary Japanese art in the 21st century. By examining their artworks, we delve into the essence of Japanese culture, history, and socio-political context, inviting us to engage with and appreciate the depth and richness of this artistic heritage.
This exhibition aims to provide art collectors from Singapore and the region with an understanding of the contributions of these artists, and to offer them a glimpse into the diverse and compelling world of contemporary Japanese art. For collectors and art enthusiasts, this exhibition provides a valuable opportunity to acquire exceptional artworks that not only exemplify the skill and creativity of these artists, but also offer a dialogue with the diverse Japanese art landscape of the 21st century.
