In a modern world diversified by the Internet and social media, the Nihonga (Japanese painting) genre is searching for its future direction.
Each of the young artists who utilize Nihonga's distinctive natural mineral pigments in various ways as they explore its possibilities, are pioneers of the art of the future. The Furukawa Art Museum has worked to provide a regular forum for the artworks and activities of young local artists, presenting an exhibition focusing on artists from Nagoya and Aichi, Gifu and Mie prefectures.
Witness not only the emotion and passion in the exhibited works, but the search for the future of Nihonga, and the infinite possibilities as presented by the young artists who will carry the world of Nihonga to come. Visitors can also see a number of works by young volunteers exhibited in the adjacent Tamesaburo Memorial Museum.
