SUNSHOWER over Tokyo
The National Art Center and Mori Museum will host contemporary art from
Southeast Asia 1980s to now.
On the view from July 5th through October 23rd, the SUNSHOWER exhibition commemorates the 50th anniversary of ASEAN, showcasing the contemporary art from the region. Although widely in use, the term ‘SUNSHOWER’ is rarely found in dictionaries. Rain falling from clear skies - It’s a frequently seen phenomenon in Southeast Asia, and used as a poetic metaphor for the exhibition showcasing the fluctuation of the times, expressed in art.
After a 25 years-long field research conducted in the region, the team selected nearly 180 artworks by 86 artist groups from 10 ASEAN member countries.
从7月5日至10月23日，SUNSHOWER 展览纪念东盟50周年，展示了这个地区的当代艺术。虽然广泛使用，术语 “SUNSHOWER” 在词典中很少出现。雨从晴朗的天空中坠落，这是东南亚经常出现的现象，用作展示时代波动的诗意比喻，并在艺术中表现出来。
