Bye Bye kitty!

Makoko Aida
I can't wait to see this show which opened on Friday at the Japan Society.

Between Heaven and Hell in Contemporary Japanese Art

Friday, March 18 — Sunday, June 12

Bye Bye Kitty!!! is a radical departure from recent Japanese exhibitions. Moving far beyond the stereotypes of kawaii and otaku culture, Japan Society’s show features sixteen emerging and mid-career artists whose whose paintings, objects, photographs, videos, and installations meld traditional styles with challenging visions of Japan’s troubled present and uncertain future.
