Jan 12 - Mar 17

Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art

Spanning works from the early 20th century to today, this exhibition juxtaposes depictions of heroes and everyday people. Works from popular culture and non-traditional media will be on display—mediums such as photography, painting, {manga}, {anime}, illustration, TV and film special effects, and signboards used during public demonstrations are all featured. Showcasing this wide range of art forms reveals that art can be found in the everyday, as can heroic acts done by ordinary people. Makoto Aida, a controversial but renowned Japanese contemporary artist who works across many mediums, will be featured as well as Ryuichi Ishikawa, Shiriagari Kotobuki, and Anri Yanase.

Time: 10am–6pm (until 8pm Fri & Sat; closed Mondays)
