The Japan Foundation is pleased to present an online exhibition “11 Stories on Distanced Relationships: Contemporary Art from Japan” from March 30 to May 5 featuring eleven artists.

It is the first online exhibition dedicated to contemporary art held by the Japan Foundation. The spread of the pandemic has meant that since last year it has been difficult for people and goods to move around the globe. At the same time, online forums have rapidly developed as places for communication, and everyone is having to reappraise their “distance” from their surroundings. This exhibition emerged from the question of how, in this context, we might go about building connections with the world.

The exhibition introduces the work of 11 Japanese and Japan-based contemporary artists, centered on new pieces commissioned on the theme of “translating distance.”
