AIDA Makoto joins "Re: Quest―Japanese Contemporary Art since the 1970s" exhibition in seoul

AIDA Makoto joins "Re: Quest―Japanese Contemporary Art since the 1970s" exhibition at Museum of Art, Seoul National University.

In the past, Japanese art has been widely shown in the Asia region with an emphasis on cutting-edge, contemporary works. However, for this time, the exhibition will focus on the history of Japan’s postwar art, which provided an important foundation for later work, and will present the survey of the last 40 years of Japanese contemporary art from various perspectives. It will encompass works dating after 1970 that have never been introduced in a comprehensive manner in Korea, and will include works of important artists, who remain highly influential in the field, and those of younger artists. It is expected to offer the opportunities to reexamine Japanese contemporary art and consider the diversity, relationship, and interaction between artistic expression and art history in the wider Asia region since the end of World War II.
