Group exhibition: Erotic Art in Modern Japan at Vanilla Gallery in Tokyo

art
Return exhibition of ‘Japon Erotica: La Nouvelle Generation Vol.2′ what was done at Musee de l’Erotisme in Paris on last May to November. Some of my works will be shown with other 31 artists’ works.
Basically, the contents of the exhibition are as same as Paris exhibition, but in Japan, there is problem to exhibit uncensored genital images, so I change some drawings from hardcore ones to pinup likes.

EXHIBITION: Erotic Art in Modern Japan
At: Vanilla Gallerly, Tokyo

Fee: 500 yen

EXHIBITION: Modern Love: 20th-Century Japanese Erotic Art, in Honolulu

EXHIBITION: Modern Love: 20th-Century Japanese Erotic Art
At Honolulu Museum of Art
November 20, 2014 – March 15, 2015
My comic book 髭と肉体 Flesh + Beard is exhibited on the show.

Sexual revolution.

After opening its ports to international trade, the leaders and citizens of late 19th-century Japan were consumed by an identity crisis of unparalleled proportions. To what degree should they embrace the values and aspirations of the Western world to which they were newly exposed, and to what degree should they pride themselves upon unique aspects of their culture? In order to garner the respect of Americans and Europeans, many felt that the sexually explicit paintings, woodblock prints, and woodblock-printed books (shunga; literally, “spring pictures”), which had been produced by Japanese artists for the past three hundred years, were embarrassingly outdated expressions of sexual hedonism. By the beginning of the 20th century, production of shunga as a popular art genre had dramatically declined, and until the 1990s, reproductions of shunga were strictly censored.

At the same time, despite attempts by government officials to sanitize the nation’s public image at the beginning of the 20th century, sexuality remained popular as a topic in Japanese art, although the ways in which it manifested itself often were radically transformed. Modern Love: 20th-Century Japanese Erotic Art explores areas of modern and contemporary art in Japan that have drawn inspiration from the tradition of shunga. These include sketches by the woodblock print designer Hashiguchi Goyō (1880–1921), photographs by Araki Nobuyoshi (b. 1940) and Yonehara Yasumasa (b. 1959), manga (illustration art) by such artists as Anno Moyoco (b. 1971), and works by Japanese artists now based in Hawaiʻi, including Masami Teraoka (b. 1936) and Mayumi Oda (b. 1941).

Modern Love: 20th-Century Japanese Erotic Art is the third and last in the Honolulu Museum of Art’s exhibition series on the sexual culture of Japan. The series began in 2012 with Arts of the Bedchamber: Japanese Shunga, which featured works from the 17th and 18th centuries, and continued in 2013 with Tongue in Cheek: Erotic Art in 19th-Century Japan.

I’ll join the group exhibition in Paris, France.
Vanilla Gallery in Tokyo will do the group exhibition Japon Erotica: La Nouvelle Generation Vol.2 (2014) at Musee de l’Erotisme in Paris. The current Japanese erotic art by 32 artists will be shown on there, and some of my works will be included.

The exhibition will be running from May 22 to October 30, 2014.
More detail, please see the museum’s website.

VanillaEroticCatalog
I got the catalog of the exhibition yesterday. You may be able to get same one at the museum. Unfortunately, it was printed in Japan, so images of genitals are censored or trimmed, but the catalog itself is very beautiful, and you can enjoy many unique Japanese erotic art from various points of views.

If you live in Paris, or if you have a plan to go to there during the exhibition, please visit to Musee de l’Erotisme in Paris!
