poster for "Heavy Light: Recent Photography and Video from Japan" Exhibition

This event has ended.

"Heavy Light" will present the exciting and highly individualistic work of a new generation of Japanese artists who have come of age following the Asian economic crash of 1990. For the last several years, China has been the focus of attention for contemporary Asian art, while the remarkable and distinctive younger generation of Japanese artists who are working today has been largely ignored. This exhibition will be the first major U.S. presentation of contemporary photo-based artwork from Japan in over ten years. Curated by ICP curator Christopher Phillips and Noriko Fuku of the University of Art and Design in Kyoto, "Heavy Light" will be accompanied by a comprehensive catalogue and a range of public programs.

    Makoto Aida's profile in ArtAsiaPacific http://www.aapmag.com/59features4.html
    Perhaps rightly, but for a fan too quickly, dismissed as a photographer in the NYT piece on the group show, Aida's work gets a lot more insight in the magazine piece by Andrew Maerkle.

    This show was at the top of my list of summer exhibits to see, and I was not disappointed...
