"We can make another future: Japanese Art after 1989"
at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane. The art of Heisei – the current period during
the imperial Japanese calendar – delivers a sophisticated reflection on the social conditions behind the production of Japanese art and the anxieties of contemporary artists. In the wake of the collapse of the economic bubble and the financial and social tensions that ensued, the post-1989 period deeply affected Japan. But it has also been a prosperous era for the country, with an international infatuation with Japanese production. This exhibition has built up a panorama of 25-years worth of creation in this particular context.
Until 20th September
