Curator: Shihoko Iida and Diego Sileo
The exhibition investigates the Japanese contemporary art of the 2000s, focusing on how bodies and performances are connected to society, environment, materiality and technology. Contextualizing the poetics of the artists invited in the genealogy of the post-war Japanese avant-gardes or in the recent past, the exhibition deals with existential, political and social matters, carrying out multilayered dialogues between the works displayed.
