With the theme of “the mystery of sight,” beginning with works from the period in which techniques of perspective and shading were brought to Asia from the West, on exhibit are mysterious artworks that give the feeling of having been pulled into a magical world. One can experience the feeling o f having been transported to an unexpected place and time, away from the city, school, work, shopping areas and The Fukuoka Asian Art Museum.

◼︎”A Grain of Hope—Who Does the Land Belong To?!”

Centered on the wood-block prints of the artist group “Taring Padi,” formed in Indonesia in 1998. Works based on the themes of colonial aggression by Western powers since the 17th century and recent large-scale land development inspire thought about issues revolving around the globalization of populations and land.
