The Japan Society’s Centennial exhibition, Making a Home both celebrated the dynamism of artists who have moved to NY from Japan in recent decades and expands an understanding of Japanese contemporary art. The design of the space utilized a rearranging and recladding of the walls from the previous show, and responded to the shows thematic gestures by exploring lightness and shadow, abstractions of interior and exterior, and most importantly the chasm the artists live with by connecting two galleries across a courtyard. The exhibition’s six sections were linked by ideas associated with ‘home,’ ranging from comfort and safety found in physical structures to angst and loneliness experienced when living in solitude. The show was curated by Eric Shiner.
