An online exhibition 11 Stories on Distanced Relationships: Contemporary Art from Japan is on view from March 30 to May 5.

Organized by the Japan Foundation, this emerged from the question of how we might go about building connections with the world adapted to our reality with the coronavirus.

The exhibition introduces the work of 11 Japanese and Japan-based contemporary artists, centered on new pieces commissioned on the theme of “translating distance.” Psychological or physical distances have never been easy to reach across, or reduce. Nowadays distance has emerged as something we must learn to live with. This exhibition has been created to deliver works that earnestly address this kind of distance—from Japan to people everywhere in the world.

Co-curated by Kimura Eriko, Kondo Kenichi, Masuda Tomohiro, and Nomura Shino, this exhibition is held solely online.
