Special Exhibition: Japanese Postwar Art
Japanese Postwar Art is turning global. Recently, some of the greatest museums in the world, the Guggenheim and MoMA in NYC, Tate in London and Centre Pompidou in Paris have been actively organizing Gutai, Mono-ha and contemporary Japanese art exhibitions. Art Osaka curators have put together a fascinating exhibit of some of the most unique artworks of the 1960s and ’70s in Japan. This Special Exhibition is an opportunity for you to reconsider the artistic qualities, originality, historical context, popular appeal, fun and marketability of Japanese art.
We are pleased to announce ART OSAKA!
ART OSAKA is an art fair. A super cool event for a way too hot Japanese summer. In recent years, collecting art turned into a lifestyle. On the 10th anniversary of ART OSAKA, over 50 galleries representative of the international and local art stage specializing in contemporary art, are introducing works by both young and established artists to the public. ART OSAKA 2012 is also proudly organizing the “Japanese Contemporary Art of the 1960s and the ‘70s” special exhibition focusing on the Gutai Art and Mono-ha postwar avant-garde movements. The art fair and special exhibition will be complemented by talks and several satellite events across Osaka. ART OSAKA is the right time and the right space for you to welcome art in Osaka.
