To celebrate the strong and historic cultural links between Japan and New York, Japan Society presents this large-scale group exhibition featuring the work of 33 contemporary Japanese artists who call New York City home, including Yoko Ono, Ushio Shinohara, Kunie Sugiura, Yuken Teruya, and Aya Uekawa.

The show comprises a broad range of media—from painting and sculpture to video and photography—and covers diverse age groups, identities, experiences, and styles that will show the breadth and depth of contemporary Japanese art as developed, practiced, and presented in New York. Visitors will go on a conceptual journey through multifaceted “homes” installed throughout the Society, illuminating the ways in which Japanese artists have made their homes and careers here since the 1950s, often bringing with them and maintaining aesthetic vocabularies that reveal their Japanese roots. Making a Home is curated by Eric C. Shiner, an independent curator specializing in contemporary Japanese art.

Artists featured in Making a Home are: ON megumi Akiyoshi, Noriko Ambe, Ei Arakawa, Satoru Eguchi, Ayakoh Furukawa, Toru Hayashi, Noritoshi Hirakawa, Yoshiaki Kaihatsu, Takahiro Kaneyama, Emiko Kasahara, Misaki Kawai, Miwa Koizumi, Yumi Kori, Nobuho Nagasawa, Hiroyuki Nakamura, Yoko Ono, Hiroki Otsuka, K
