Logical Emotion: Contemporary Art from Japan
The Japan Foundation is pleased to present Logical Emotion: Contemporary Art from Japan, an exhibition jointly organized by curators from Japan and Switzerland, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between these two countries. The event is scheduled to begin at the Museum Haus Konstruktiv in Zürich, Switzerland in October, 2014, and then travelling to Poland and Germany.
With 14 participating artists, architects, and designers, the exhibition will consist of over 80 works including new site-specific works and large-scale installations. Logical Emotion, the title of which might seem to be paradox at first, introduces new aspects of Japanese contemporary art through its genre-breaking display of works that contain both logical and emotional elements.
