Japan in the 1980s bore witness to movements that urged the reinstatement of painting and sculpture. The result was a movement dubbed “New Painting” which was characterized by vibrant colors and dynamic brushstrokes that reflected the flourishing economic circumstances of the times. Over 30 years later, it’s evident that art forms and concepts fundamental to today’s art blossomed in the 1980s, such as art installation, viewer participation in artwork concepts of alternative space, media art and so on. This exhibition, in Shizuoka, reconsiders Japanese art of the 1980s through contemporary perspectives and introduces works that represent “Starting Points.”
