DESCRIPTION

To enhance and nurture the connection of the Filipino community with its international community, the Metropolitan Museum, in partnership with the Japan Foundation, presents the travelling exhibition Winter Garden: the Exploration of the Micropop Imagination in Contemporary Japanese.

The exhibition will feature works from 14 acclaimed Japanese artists who will tap on the theme called Micropop, as coined by the curator, Ms. Midori Matsui. Micropop, according to Ms. Matsui, is a combination of the artists' distinct views of the world through the combination of fragments and imbuing the obsolete or the commonplace with new functions or meanings. This exhibition will reflect the struggles of the newer artistic generation in the face of globalization, and will gradually transform the perception of the world with the use of small, but impactful changes on everyday objects.
