After a successful run in Penang in April, the Japan Foundation travelling exhibition, Winter Garden: The Exploration of Micropop Imagination in Contemporary Japanese Art, will make its Kuala Lumpur debut at the University of Malaya Art Gallery on 4–22 June.
Curated by art critic Midori Matsui, the exposition focuses on reality as a product of “micropop imagination”. The term is used to describe the unique worldview of 14 young Japanese artists who rearrange fragments of information and knowledge to suggest fresh ways of perceiving the outdated and commonplace. The 35 illustrations and installations on display promise to involve spectators in new games and situations that encourage flexible communication and spontaneous actions.
Date: 4–22 June, 2015
Venue: University of Malaya Art Gallery, Level 5, Chancellery Building, University of Malaya, 50603 Kuala Lumpur
Opening hours: 9.30 a.m. – 5.00 p.m., Monday – Friday
