Awakenings: Art in Society in Asia 1960s–1990s

31 January–6 May 2019

Exhibition Overview


Renato Habulan, Drama of the Nations, 2010.

This exhibition focuses, on an unprecedented scale, on the period from the 1960s to the 1990s, the dawning of contemporary art in Asian countries. It gathers together 140 provocative, experimental works produced in the turbulent period from more than ten regions and countries, and examines the similarities and differences between them. As the culmination of a five-year joint project by three national museums in Japan, Korea and Singapore and the Japan Foundation Asia Center, the show opens in Japan, and then travels to Korea and Singapore.
