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 concise yet broad-ranging display of contemporary Japanese art -- a showcase of
sculpture, photography, filmmaking, painting, ceramic ware, and installation work. Yoshihiro Suda carves a single tiny petal out of wood. Miyuki Yokomizo constructs a room of soap bars big enough to walk in. Tetsuya Nakamura’s
lacquerwork is sleekly perfect. Tomoyasu Murata’s animation is handmade and nostalgic. “Passage to the Future” offers visitors an up-to-date glimpse into the variety of current Japanese artistic practice.
Artists: Atsushi Fukui, Satoshi Hirose, Maywa Denki, Tomoyasu Murata, Tetsuya Nakamura, Masafumi Sanai, Katsuhiro Saiki, Yoshihiro Suda, Tabaimo, Nobuyuki Takahashi, Miyuki Yokomizo
