This exhibition, curated by Kyoji Takizawa from the Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts, introduces the work of ten artists who explored a wide range of possibilities through prints and expanded the range of expression in contemporary art using the print medium in the 1970s.

Rather than focusing on print artists who are considered to have shaped the history of contemporary Japanese prints, the exhibition deals with prints by painters who drew on trends in contemporary art and attempts to reassess the existing history of contemporary Japanese prints.

This exhibition was made possible by the Japan Foundation, Sydney and the Consulate-General of Japan, Brisbane.
