Several SVA alumni are part of the new “Making a Home: Japanese Contemporary Artists in New York” show at the Japan Society, through Sunday, January 13, 2008. The exhibition celebrates the strong and historic cultural links between the two cultures by featuring the work of 33 contemporary Japanese artists who call New York City home.
The show comprises a broad range of media—from painting and sculpture to video and photography—and covers diverse age groups, experiences and styles to show the breadth and depth of contemporary Japanese art as developed, practiced and presented here. The alumni included in “Making a Home” are ON Megumi Akiyoshi (MFA 2002 Fine Arts), Ei Arakawa (BFA 2004 Fine Arts), Satoru Eguchi (MFA 2004 Fine Arts), Takahiro Kaneyama (MFA 2001 Photography and Related Media), Hiroyuki Nakamura (MFA 2002 Photography and Related Media) and Yuken Teruya (MFA 2001 Fine Arts).
