VARIATION AND AUTONOMY
THE PRINTS OF CONTEMPORARY JAPANESE PAINTERS
In partnership with the Embassy of Japan to the UAE, Abu Dhabi Festival will showcase 42 prints produced by 10 prominent Japanese contemporary painters, including Yayoi Kusama, Masanari Murai and Yasukazu Tabuchi, who explored a wide range of possibilities through prints and expanded the range of expression in contemporary art using the print medium in the 1970s. Rather than focusing on specialists who are considered to have shaped the history of contemporary Japanese prints, the exhibition looks at the work of painters who drew on trends in contemporary art and attempts to reassess the existing history of contemporary Japanese prints.
