Passage to the Future: Art from a New Generation in Japan

The UNLV College of Fine Arts and the Marjorie Barrick Museum are proud to join The Japan Foundation, the Japan America Society of Nevada and the Office of the Honorary Consulate of Japan in the Southwestern debut of this internationally touring exhibition.

Featuring forty-two works from eleven Japanese artists, some internationally known, some relatively obscure, "Passage to the Future" is a tight yet broad-ranging demonstration of contemporary Japanese art, a sampling of sculpture, photography, filmmaking, painting, ceramic ware, and installation work. Yoshihiro Suda carves a single small petal out of wood -- Miyuki Yokomizo assembles a room of soap bars big enough to walk in. Tabaimo makes satire out of street slang and historical references. Raku Kichizaemon the 15th refreshes his family tradition with a raku tea bowl. Tetsuya Nakamura is sleek and speedy. Tomoyasu Murata is handmade and nostalgic. 

Artists: Atsushi Fukui, Satoshi Hirose, Maywa Denki, Tomoyasu Murata, Tetsuya Nakamura, Masafumi Sanai, Katsuhiro Saiki, Yoshihiro Suda, Tabaimo, Nobuyuki Takahashi, Miyuki Yokomizo
