Illuminating and challenging all at once, the Grey Art Gallery’s newest exhibit explores a groundbreaking era in Japanese society: the 1970’s. A variety of mediums showcase the nation’s rapidly changing societal fabric, which include works by artists Ishuchi Miyako, Daido Moriyama, Jiro Takamatsu, and Shomei Tomatsu.

Momentous in its thematic discourse, as well as in presentation, the exhibit demonstrates the critical role visual language plays in portraying a society’s metamorphosis.
