Avant-Garde Art in Post-War Japan

The library has a new anthology containing documents, artist manifestos, critical essays, and roundtable discussions related to avant-garde art in postwar-Japan. This recent publication from the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York,  From Post-War to Post-Modern: Art in Japan 1945-1980, assembles a number of primary source documents by scholars, critics, and artists.  Focusing on a number of disciplines–painting, photography, film, performance, architecture and design– this book ” . . . offers an unprecedented look at over four decades of Japanese art–both as it occurred and as it is seen from the perspective of the present day.”  (From book jacket)
