Bye Bye Kitty at the Japan Society

Kohei Nawa, PixCell-Elk, 2009
Bye Bye Kitty!!!  
Between Heaven and Hell in Contemporary Japanese Art
Curated by David Elliot

Manabu Ikeda, Existence, 2004 (pen and acrylic ink on paper, 67 1/8 x 80 5/8")

Tomoko Kashiki, In a Box, 2008

Chiharu Shiota, Dialogue with Absence, 2010

This amazing little show examines the conversation between Japanese art and Western modernism. 

Its prescience alone is reason enough to make a trip
to New York's Japan Society, located across the
street from Dag Hammerskjold Plaza near the U.N.

While you're there, consider donating to the Japan Society's Earthquake Relief Fund.
