|Vanishing Points: Japanese Contemporary Art Exhibition
As a part of the ongoing 'Japan-India Friendship Year', VANISHING POINTS:
JAPANESE CONTEMPORARY ART EXHIBITION is being held from October 12 to
November 11, 2007, at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi.
The Exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Modern Art
(Ministry of Culture, Government of India), and The Japan Foundation New
The exhibition presents the work of ten Japanese artists with reference to
such perennial issues as the nature of the viewer and what is seen,
metaphorically developing the rule of the vanishing point in the linear
perspective system of perceiving images. Since the 1990s, society has been
transformed by high-level information networks and globalization, making it
difficult to have a solid identity or a real sense of the body. It is
expected that the stance of artists who are vigorously engaged in making
art and questioning subjective ways of seeing and expression will have a
strong impact on artists and the public in India.
10 Japanese artists contribute to the exhibition and what makes the
exhibition remarkable is some Japanese artists created their art work on
collaboration with Indian artists here in India. The collaboration answers
the spirits of Japan-India Friendship Year.
