For the 160th anniversary of France/Japan diplomatic relationships, The Japan Fondation organises several exhibitions in Paris and other French cities. For this occasion, Art Curator Japan will host in Vaison-la-Romaine’s cultural centre, from July 12 to Septembre 29 an exhibition entitled Neo Japonisme — Résonances 2018.
The show will feature 7 Japanese artists, Beniko Choji, Arisa Okazaki, ARTIST Miu, Emi Uchida, Fuh-Mi, Yujin Koyama and Masato Shigemori ; and 3 French artists, the maze specialist Baptiste Tavernier, Alain Vaissiere et Stephane Ferrero.
Japanese art and culture revolve around the “confrontation” between the immutability of codes and conventions and the constant desire for modernity. The exhibition Neo Japonisme – Résonances 2018 invites the visitors to take a closer look at this paradox. This project is part of a national initiative that highlights the exceptional partnership between France and Japan.
