Concept of the Exhibition
The title of the exhibition, “Under Current,” can be defined as a “hidden flow” and refers to another current that is difficult to see but that exists underneath the ebb and flow of trends and the mainstream of the times. This exhibition is divided into four sections, “Another Story,” “Scream,” “Division and Conversation,” and “Song of the City,” and is the first attempt at bringing together these artists’ works and activities, which until now have not been systematically evaluated or discussed in relation to the history of contemporary art in Japan. The practices of the artists who experienced the end of that era of prosperity are detached from political perspectives, and instead question the identity of the most basic unit of society, the “individual”. Additionally, due to their first-hand observations of societies of mass consumption shifting towards societies of sustainability, they have produced powerful, future-oriented works that focus on the reverence for nature, respect for life, and the need to create a new relationship between the natural environment and human society.

Naoya Inose, Atsushi Kaga, Makiko Kudo, Arisa Kumagai, Toshiyuki Konishi, Mariko Kobayash, Masaaki Suzuki, Tomoko Nagai, Sanemasa Namonaki, Yuichi Hirako, Tomona Matsukawa, Tarou Maruyama, Keita Morimoto, Takanosuke Yasui, Yuki Yamamoto
