Vasan Sitthiket at The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo

14 Oct 2018

Vasan Sitthiket is currently on view at The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, Japan as part of Awakenings: Art in Society in Asia 1960s – 1990s.

This exhibition focuses, on an unprecedented scale, on the period from the 1960s to the 1990s, the dawning of contemporary art in Asian countries. It gathers together 140 provocative, experimental works produced in the turbulent period from more than ten regions and countries, and examines the similarities and differences between them. As the culmination of a five-year joint project by three national museums in Japan, Korea and Singapore and the Japan Foundation Asia Center, the show first opens in Japan, and then travels to the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea and National Gallery of Singapore.

Awakenings: Art in Society in Asia 1960s – 1990s is on view at the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo until 24 December 2018.
