Japan Society Members are invited to enjoy this FREE private showing and the fellowship of other art lovers over a glass of wine on June 6 at the Heather James Fine Art gallery in San Francisco!
Heather James Fine Art with the cooperation of the Japan Society of Northern California will host on June 6 at 5:30pm a private showing and curated tour of We Were Always Here: Japanese-American Post-War Pioneers of Art, a collection of boundary-pushing paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by more than 15 artists including Yayoi Kusama, Ruth Asawa, Arakawa, and Masami Teraoka. The show provides fascinating insights into the cross-cultural narratives that flourished among Japanese and Japanese American artists and the role they played in the post-World War II American art scene.
“The artists featured in the show forever altered and enriched the artistic landscape in the United States through their work. It is especially fitting to present this exhibition in San Francisco, a city graced with a history of substantial cultural contributions made by Japanese Americans,” says James Carona, founder of Heather James Fine Art.
