Immerse yourself in a world of fantasy and wonder with The Japan Foundation, Sydney’s exhibition Storymakers in Contemporary Japanese Art.

This free exhibition features a selection of works by five contemporary Japanese artists that evoke imagery from traditional fairy tales across cultures including The Little Match Girl and other stories of interspecies relationships and transformations, and encompasses a newly created work by interdisciplinary artist Tomoko Kōnoike, videos by Yūichi Higashionna and Fuyuhiko Takata, paintings by Maki Ohkojima and a flip book animation by Masahiro Hasunuma.

Curated by Emily Wakeling and Mayako Murai, the artworks in this exhibition, with their re-workings of materials, formats and corporeal experiences, revisit old familiar stories in new forms to transcend the anthropocentric worldview. 

Opening reception July 29, 2022 (Friday) 6pm-8pm Opening address at 6:30pm
