PoNJA-GenKon was established in March 2003 by Dr. Reiko Tomii and Dr. Miwako Tezuka as an online listserve group. The acronym stands for “Post-1945 (Nineteen forty-five) Japanese Art Discussion Group / Gendai Bijutsu Kondankai.” The goal of PoNJA-GenKon is to bring together specialists and professionals in the English-speaking world with interest in post-1945 Japanese art, and to offer a forum for interaction and debate on issues addressing postwar Japanese art and Japanese modernity. Today, PoNJA-GenKon has grown to include more than 200 global members many of who are leaders and innovators of the field. Since its inception, PoNJA-GenKon has organized and co-organized eight panels, symposia, and conferences in collaboration with academic and art institutions, including Yale University (2005); Getty Research Institute and University of California, Los Angeles (2007); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (2009); University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (2010); Asia Society, New York (2010); University of Southern California (2012); Japan Society and New York University (2014); and University of Chicago (2017).
