Narrative Visions in Contemporary ASEAN Art

Exhibition

Flyer of NARRATIVE VISIONS exhibition

This was the inaugural art exhibition at the Japan Foundation ASEAN Culture Center, established in January 1990 with the mission of introducing Asian culture and art to Japan. The exhibition presented 19 artworks by artists from six ASEAN countries. The works were chosen from the Fukuoka Art Museum’s extensive “Asian Collection,” built up since the museum’s opening in 1979. The exhibition sought to identify the originality of the “narratives” and “themes” of ASEAN contemporary art. As Ushiroshoji Masahiro wrote in his essay for the accompanying catalogue, “The ‘narrative element’ is related to the traditional ‘narratives,’ and many works remind us of the tradition rich in decorative elements.”
