The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles and Japanese American Cultural and Community Center present Winter Garden: The Exploration of the Micropop Imagination in Contemporary Japanese Art


Renowned art critic Midori Matsui is the curator for this exhibit that boasts a wide spectrum of work, including the world of “Micropop” as embodied by a generation of 14young Japanese artists who came onto the scene from the latter half of the 1990s throughout the first decade of the 21th Century. “Micropop,” a word coined by Matsui, refers to the unique worldview of artists who rearrange diverse fragments of information and knowledge to give new meanings and uses to things that are outdated and commonplace.
